Can shortness of breath be a symptom of Costochondritis? Otherwise the severe shortness of breath that my husband is having is undiagnosed after every test that can be done.
Thanks for any comments...:confused:

  • I had Chostacondritis once years ago -- at first the thought was pleurisy but, after the ER doc asked me a bunch of questions it was determined to be chostachondritis. I do remember having 'labored' breathing as it felt like I was having a heart attack and it hurt so bad I was shallow breathing. Once I was given a IM of anti-inflammatory and rested (no lifting etc.) I was ok. Unfortunately I do not recall, the shortness of breath -- I do know however I have heard people with back problems can exhibit symptoms of asthma... possibly have your hubby go see a chiropractor?
