My husband has been recently diagnosed with costocondritis. He has been in severe pain too. The only advise I can suggest is See a local doctor. If your pain is that severe you should be given narcotics to help control it. Also, if the Toradol shot worked for you - it is available in pill form by prescription. So this may be a good option. In looking on the internet there have been suggestions for relaxation techniques citing stress as a cause for this condition. It may be beneficial to try a chiropactor or go to your local spa for theraputic massages routinely. It might help. Anything is worth a try. Hope this helps. I know your reguest is old but I thought I'd reply just in case.

Silicone inserts leave radius and ulna pressure-free and provide intermittent compression to the soft tissue of the joint, leading to increased circulation, thus aiding in the resorption of swelling and edema.
