condrochondritis

I went to my dr. today with a sharp jabbing intermittant pain under my left breast. I thought I was having a heart attack. I am 49 and in pretty good health and have been meditation for 3 months. 6 weeks very regularly. The pain is very sharp and only lasts a few seconds only to return. He told me I have condrochondritis and to take some anti-inflammatories and not to worry. Right! What is this and do I have something ominous? Please help!

Sorry, I meant costochondritis. It's a big word.

Hello Rona,

I too have Costo. Initially, the anti-inflam's helped. Eventually, they helped less and less and I found myself looking for information. That's how I ended up on this site.

My first comment would be to look up all available info on this site. There's quite a bit. Secondly, I have had limited success with chiro's, and much more with Rolfing. The rolfing helped to the point that I almost forgot that this ailment even existed. Eventually it did come back because I did not practise skilled relaxation at that time. Thirdly, I've experimented with magnesium supplementation (magnesium aspartate). I'm going to be getting an I.V. soon and I'll be sure to let you know how it goes. The mag supplementation worked better than the anti-inflam's, or at least as good as they worked when I first started taking them.

Finally, I would say that it's great that you're meditating, however you should probably get checked by a biofeedback specialist to ensure that you're getting into an "alpha state". It may save you some frustration in the long run.

Cheers,

Doug

Hi, Rona.

Listen to Doug (Thanks, Doug!)

If this were me, I would find a Certified Rolfer and get rid of the immediate problem. However, without effective SR, practiced at least twice a day, the problem will eventually come back.

This is a "misery"; not something you need to worry about. HOWEVER, it IS a message to you that you need SR if you are not going to get more serious stress related problems in the future.

Walt

I have found a certified Rolfer. She charges 100.00 a session. I have been doing SR only once a day and will start to try in increase this. I am sure that I would have this much worse without the SR at all. My question is if the Rolfing comes after the pain is gone would it still be benificial to have 10 sessions. She said that I do have chronic bracing and she asked me who my "wise" dr was who sent me with this advise. She said that not too many drs understand this concept and I should hang on to my holistic dr. Thank you thank you thank you Dr. Stoll.

Hi, Rona.

Thanks for your testimonial!

Rolfing produces its long term results by re-establishing a healthier level of homeodynamics where the bodymind can maintain it. You need the 10 sessions. You will look back on this time as the best investment you ever made in time and money.

Let us know how you do.

Walt
