Ever since I was 17, I've dealt with a rib slipping out of place (and now two). After tons of research and a talk with my doctor, it sounds like Costochondritis. Usually, 2 to 3 visits to the Chiropractor to get it popped back in solve the problem but this time it seems like its having difficulties staying in place. Its starting to concern me and I just dont know what to do. I dont want to keep visiting the Chiro cause it always seems like a temporary fix. So far, I've understood that Costo can be treated, but never "solved".
Do any of you on here know anything about it or what I can do to help?
The pain level is immense and it seems that only Aleve and heat help...very temporarily. Are there any tips/tricks I can try to help with the pain or to help the "swelling" of my sternum go down?
I have also wondered, if anyone else on here experiences this, do you have "light popping" noises that happen on the back of your neck when your rib is out/costo flares up? I also experience either fake extreme hunger or fake nausea (no throwing up, just the crazy nausea)....does that happen to anyone else??
Any info/tips would be appreciated!
