Earlier last month i went to the hospital complaining of chest pain burning sensation shortness of breath tightness in my chest. I was thinking i was having a heart attack. I was getting so worry which made things worse for me. The Doctor did some test to make sure that it was not a heart attack.
He came back and said my heart is fine blood pressure is fine I’m wondering what is going on with me he went and touch my chest and that was very painful. when i breath in it was really painful.He said that i had this thing call Constochondritis.
Costochondritis is a condition that causes chest pain due to inflammation of the cartilage and bones in the chest wall. Also called Tietze's Syndrome, costochondritis occurs when there is inflammation at the junction of the rib bone and breastbone (sternum). At this junction, there is cartilage joining these bones. This cartilage can become irritated and inflamed. Depending on the extent of the inflammation, costochondritis can be quite painful.
The Doctor said it was cause by emotional stress, i have been letting a lot of things get to me instead of letting things go now i'm am learning to do that by walking away from situation i can't handle. I am reading a lot more and praying,giving it to God. I still worry some but i 'm learning.
