Does the cold weather affect costochondritis? YES! When we get cold, we "brace"- a big no no for Costo sufferers.
So if you've just struggled through a cold day and are wondering if it affects your Costo, you are not crazy or making things up.
So what to do about it?
2) Hand warmers in your bra or your shirt around the ribs
3) Get in the hot tub or sauna often to thaw out and increase your circulation
4) Breathe...sounds simple, but really focus on breathing deeply (don't hold your breathe)
5) Move to Mexico. =)
Hugs to everyone! Stay warm this winter!
