Hello murph222,
I have had bouts with costochondritis and my cardiologist normally prescribes an anti-inflammatory medication like a steroid and that takes care of it. Prior to even knowing what I had when this pain hit me, I had no idea what type of dr. to
see about it. I would suggest seeing your family dr. or if you have a cardiologist see him. It is treatable with the proper meds.


Good Luck,
Meaningfulc1952
