Contact your nearest private hospital for a referral to their pain clinic. Severe costochondritis can be treated with a nerve block or even surgery. The doctor will have to confirm costochondrits, as there are other possibilities that have to be excluded. Refer to the following article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Costochondritis
