Alright my fellow costo buddies. If you are wondering: is a symptom of Costochondritis that your pain is worse at night or is your pain is worse later in the day? You hit the nail on the head. As you move about your day, sit for long periods of time or pick objects or adorable little children, the inflammation will increase as the day goes on, irritaing your Costochondritis further. Our Costo feels better in the morning because the body has the time to recover a little bit and fight some the inflammation.
What do we do about this? I know we all handle this condition differently and I respect that. The way I'm dealing with this particular symptom of Costo is to take a look at the choices made throughout the day, trying not to pay a higher price at night. Eek!
If your Costochondritis hurts worse in the morning, read the comments below- you are not alone! From what I understand, some people have more pain in the morning due the way they sleep at night. Double Eek!
