So I was having some difficulty breathing and went to the doctor today, they took some chest xrays and some blood tests, and concluded that I have costochondritis and said it was probably caused by a viral infection and just prescribed me some anti-inflammatory drugs. But what I'm wondering right now is first off, what kind of virus causes this and where could it have come from, and just how contagious am I?
Hey guys, I was also diagnosed with costochondritis from a viral infection (came about when I was doing some heavy coughing). I've been dealing with it for 3 months now. Can any of you just give me a brief update on how you're doing and/or how long it took you to recover? I'm really freaking out here because it's not getting much better! Please and thank you <3
