the story begins, about 6 months ago when i started with a pain in my left side of the chest... to make things short, i been to 3 different doctors (1 sport medic and 2traumatologist) only to be let down everytime. they just cant simply help me. i suffer from so sort of chondritis (which i attribute to my swimming practice). the problem is that i been told this is not a terrible afliction but is one that is chronic.. so my pain remains, i havent been back to the pool, and i am slowly going totally mad. i have used all sorts of medications even had intraarticular kenacort injection administer and the pain just laughs and returns shortly after. what has worked best is artren 100mg(voltaren) but only for short periods and the pain always as ever returns.
i also was told that what i have is a degeneration of the cartilage (strange for my age 27) and that it can return with rest (i havent exercised in a month); and some treatment that consist of a medication (i wasnt told about) that helps regenerate the cartilage... anyhow i am, as can be seen desperate and lost. i dont know what else to do. if any of you has a suggestion please comment.
