condochondritis

    
Asked by gerrydeb (Female; 62; I have been diagnosed with condochondritis. I got it after having a very bad upper respiratory infection in Jan. I exercise 6 days a week. Two of those days with a trainer. the condochondritis only hurt when I sneezed or coughed up until 3 weeks ago. Now everything makes it hurt. I do not want to stop my exercise classes. I have not done them for two weeks but want to return. ; Relevant drugs:cannot take NSAIDS. I am taking Traumeel and Turmerick for inflammation. ) on Sat 09, Jul 2011 07:37am

all about condochondritis: Will I cause permanent damage if I return to my moderately difficult exercise routine. I am in very good condition (bodywise) with all of my exercising.

Hi. Costochondritis is an inflammation of the costal cartilages. This commonly takes a few weeks to heal with or without medications, without permanent damage and you should be able to return to your normal routine. You could read more about it at http://www.emedicinehealth.com/costochondritis/article_em.htm Hope this helps. Take care.
