my doctor thinks i have costochondritis but i have been dealing with the pain for over a month and the pains has only got worse. so the dr put me on pain patches and pain pills for if the patches don't work he calls it break thru pain. I am still having sharpe pains especially on my left side of my chest so when i stop taking these pain meds how will i beable to work i do alot of walking with my job If there is a dr out there that can help explain this to me i'd be very grateful thanks :'(
