The excruciating pain on the left side of my chest when I take a deep breath or lift anything heavy was diagnosed as costochondritis. It often spreads to the back, neck and shoulder. Tightness of chest and back muscles is even horrible, resulting in loss of concentration and memory. Anti-inflammatory drugs like Emanzen-DP do not completely cure it. Was anyone of you treated successfully for costochondritis (in India)? Did the pain completely subside after treatment?
