I was diagnosed with this disease about two weeks ago. I did go to ER to rule out any heart problems and after two hours of testing and a shot of torodal (sp?) I was sent home. About a week later it has returned. I have been taking 2400 miligrams of Motrin daily, using a heating pad, rest, as well as use of a hot tub. I am absolutely miserable and absolutely cannot sleep or breath. I am 50 years old and work as a bookeeper for a roofing company, which of course is not very strenous. I need additional help, this is the most horrible pain I have ever experienced. I would appreciate any suggestions. The condition makes everyday activities very difficult. Thanks
