Costocondtitis

Posted by Mike on February 09, 2001 at 12:53:33:

Dr. Walt,
I have just been prescribed rofecoxib. After just one day I breath 75% better. My Dr. describes it as super asprin. I am still not able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but I do feel I just had to contact you. Package insert desribes it as treatment for osteoarthritis and pain due to surgery or dental procedures. Do I think this a cure, No I don't. I completely agree with you on everything you have written on costochondritis.I do think that there isother area of concern that that needs to be addressed.You may have, but our I feel that the first thing everyone should look at is their every day life, myself included. I awaken every morning light my first smoke, pour myself a glass of iced tea so I can take my first allergy pill because among other things I am allergic to smoke, pour my first cup of coffee and sit around for an hour trying to get myself moving and wondering why I am cursed with this terrible pain, why I have so much stress in my life and why I got such a bad nights sleep. Am I the only one who has these habits?
I am convinced that stimulants such nicotene, caffeine, antihistamines, and thiaflavin in tea increases tension, stress and how we deal with it.
In closing let me thank you for your help and information about costochondritis and the way you seem to explain things to where you don't have to be a doctor to understand all the facts.
Thanks,

P.S.
Will keep you posted on rofecoxib.
