. I can’t take nsaids . I’m on tramadol (already on it for fibromyalgia) muscle relaxants and now gabapentin and lidocaine patches. I want to die ! This is terrible pain I get severe sternal chest tightness abs then my back feels like it will collapse. I was initially diagnosed with pericarditis ( now resolved ) then a couple weeks later costochondritis and now gastritis / reflux from the steroids . I did 5 days of prednisone ( bad side effects and had to get off prematurely ) and then did a 11 day medrol pack. I’m losing my mind I feel like I’ll never feel normal again and be able to go back to work.
