You may find these links helpful:>

You could ask your Dr to refer you to a Physiotherapist to learn some gentle chest stretching exercises, but not everyone has good results with it, so you need to be aware and leave off if it causes more pain.

Also, try to stay away from people with flu etc. because if you were to get a bug, the coughing could aggravate matters considerably.

Good luck,

I used to have costochondritis many years ago. I remember how painful it was and I thought I had something wrong with my heart. It will usually go away in a years time.
