Hi all

I have just been confirmed as suffering from Costochondritis. I have been experiencing pain on and off for 12 months or so but just over the past couple of months the pain has got so much worse.

Last night i woke with terrible pain, it was so bad I was unable to lie down again. I take 75mgs Amitriptyline so do tend to sleep for about 4hrs, but the pain last night was so bad I'll not lie, I did get quite scared.

Any advice on how to cope with this, and does the pain dissipate in any way?

This is just something else I've been told to get on with...
