I've been diagnosed with costochondritis after a severe chest infection, everything I've read about it sounds pretty grim. But the biggest kicker is not being able to run, this is driving me nuts. I haven't run since 15th March and have already missed out on two races I was really looking forward to and trained hard for over the winter. The pain is less intense than it used to be, but I still don't feel able to try even jogging.
Has anybody else been diagnosed with this and what advice can you give?
Please get in touch as I feel just miserable. My Doctor has prescribed me some painkillers and told me to rest (!!!) - I am also taking pro-joint vitamins to speed up recovery.
