I am wondering what infection causes rib/chest pain? Its like a dull pain that increases when I breath in deeply. It hurts in the front and my back.
I also have a chest tightness feeling

I have hot flashes but not sweating

As a separate set of symptoms I also have foot pain, leg pain, anxiety

I have a headache across my forehead with pain in behind my eyes as well

thoughts?

I used to get costochondritis pretty bad. The intensity of the pain went along with my air hunger, so I tend to associate it with babesia.

Sometimes the way the symptoms cluster over one another it's hard to say what's what. Even if one bug isn't the cause of a specific sx it certainly can make it worse all around.

Maybe you could try something to bring the inflammation down?

I literally have every exact symptom you have plus nausea and painful neck. My worst is the eye pressure/pain and headache.

I think my thigh pain, hot flashes and chest tightness is babesia.

I am currently treating babesia and neurological lyme. I think the other symptoms like extreme anxiety could be caused by either disease.

It's really hard to tell what pathogen causes which symptoms. I have costochondritis at times, too. Sometimes, I think it may be from parasites...? Who knows. Babesia is like malaria which is a parasite.

You just have to try different things to see what helps. Have you tried taking a bath in epsom salts?

I have costochondritis too. I was pushing my old lawn mower one year and thought I was having a heart attack because my chest hurt so bad. Definitely aggravated with movement especially any pushing. One thing I also learned is massage will aggravate this condition. Treated mine as a sprain.

It's like an experiment to see which remedies work for us. For me, capsules of turmeric take down inflammational pain. I get turmeric in bulk at the health food store and dip 00-size empty capsules in it. I take a couple a day. I can feel it working fairly quickly.

That's funny about tumeric... I got some organic tumeric & some chai tea spice mix from the Indian grocery store - it has black pepper & cardamom (it's very spicy tasting). I put alot of it into chai tea & drank it.

One day it made me feel better but it didn't work after that...? They say so many good things about tumeric, I wanted to try it. It didn't seem to do anything that I could actually feel. I tried it almost every day for about a month.

There's an ayruvedic recipie for "golden milk". I tried to do that with chai tea, milk, tumeric, the chai tea spice & some coconut oil (I think you are supposed to use ghee). I didn't feel alot different.

Maybe I'll try it again?
