It appears you may be under the impression I am a medical professional. I am not, and am therefore not in a position to provide medical advice. Mayo Clinic Connect provides a place for community members (patients, family members, caregivers) to share their experiences and connect with those who’ve faced similar experiences.
As moderators, we help connect people with similar health issues and ensure that the community is safe, welcoming, respectful and inclusive. Here is some information you may be interested in about how and why we moderate: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/about-our-moderators-and-mentors/. As we continue to keep this discussion going about costochondritis, the likelihood of other members joining in increases.
