Costochondritis Flare Up
I experienced a flare up of costochondritis symptoms after several hours of work that didn’t involve any breaks in between the tasks.
I first cooked tea and chicken curry for my family, and then studied for nearly two hours. At the end, I had an autistic lockdown.
I took medication to treat it, but because of the lockdown, I took it slightly later than usual and my symptoms persisted for longer.
My pain was an 8/10.
I realised that on days when I cook, I generally need to take medication as I experience flare ups, more frequently.
My flare up involved ear pain, which was rare and highly uncommon.
