For the past 2 years I have been complaining of chest pain. At first, I was diagnosed with anxiety and prescribed Ativan, although I've never thought myself to be an anxious person. Then, a doctor diagnosed me with a mitral valve prolapse. Now, at 2 years later doctors are saying it's inflammation of the costal cartilage is my ribs. Nothing helps. It feels like little balls on top of and around my clavicle, it's very tender to the touch and you can see and palpate the inflammation.
