A Different Kind of Chest Pain

By Wednesday, 03 April 2013 09:23 AM Current | Bio | Archive

Costochondritis (known also as chest wall pain) is an inflammation of the cartilage that joins the upper ribs to the sternum.

This is a condition that can be caused by injuries, such as a car accident, heavy lifting, or can even come from drinking too much coffee.

Although it is harmless, it mimics the type of pain that can signal a heart attack. Therefore, it’s responsible for countless trips to the emergency room.

Anti-inflammatory agents, like Advil or Aleve, are the best treatment. As an anti-inflammatory alternative, try eating 25 red cherries a day, or use cherry juice concentrate daily. I have tried it, and it really works.
