I have had costochondritis for over a year and a half now and I was just wonder how others deal with it and if anyone has found anything that helps woth the pain. The pain is absolutely horrible and no one doesn't think it's as bad as it is. The pain is so bad sometimes that I can't go to school and the pain causes me not to be able to concentrate very long which is affecting everything I do. I don't want to do the stuff a normal teen does because I'm in so much pain. I have read that it usually heals in a couple months or starts to feel better but mine has gotten worse! Does anyone have any advice or anything for me?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! I need help!!!!!!
