I've just been diagnosed with costochondritis. My chest is painful and sore after a 3 month (on and off) exacerbation. I find that movement triggers it and I sometimes I get a little breathless. I've been walking around today and felt like I had been winded in my chest. Does anyone else experience these symptoms? Do you know how long it takes until the inflammation settles? I am on 200mg of Fostair now, Ventolin, anti-acid tablets and painkillers.
