COSTOCHONDRITIS - POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS


I have had this happen many times and it is an awful feeling that often scared me. The most common way to describe this feeling is pain and tenderness in the chest. Usually sharp, aching, or pressure-like. Since the ribs and breastbone connect in several different places, the pain can occur anywhere but it is most reported on just one side, usually the left side. I found this to be true for me as well. This is often mistaken as a symptom of a heart attack. I feel like a tight band is squeezing me right below my bra line.


Here are some researched ideas to help.


1. CHANGE YOUR BRA


I've been through MANY bras because of rib pain over the years. To have anything tight and restrictive always made that symptom worse for me. Here are my top 3 in order. All on Amazon. None are necessary great looking bras but Comfort wise, they win. The first one is the absolute most comfortable but not as supportive. Hope this helps you explore that idea. I have tried at least 10 other brands and have definitely settled on these as the best.


1. Hanes Women's Wireless Bra with Cooling, Seamless Smooth Comfort Wirefree T-Shirt Bra

Here is the link:


2. Bali Women's Comfort Revolution Wireless Bra, ComfortFlex Fit Full-Coverage Bra

Here is the link:


3. Playtex Women's 18-Hour Ultimate Lift Wireless Full-Coverage Bra with Everyday Comfort (good support, not as comfortable as the first two)

2. CASTOR-OIL-PACK

"An ideal location to apply the pack is on the right side of the abdomen over the gallbladder and liver, because this promotes bile flow, which relieves pain from digestive disorders."
