This past weekend I was moving some light boxes in my basement when suddenly I received a sharp pain and tightening of my midsection until it was hard to talk or breathe. Any movement that involves my core muscles is killing me.
The doctor has diagnosed this problem as costocondritis which is an inflammatory process of the costochondral or costosternal joints that causes localized pain and tenderness. Basically, I am stuck on anti-inflamatories and I cannot lift anything, in fact, I can hardly wipe my own ass.
Does anyone have any experience with this? Any stories to share? I would really appreciate hearing some.
