Dx costochondritis now tender over entire rib cage front&back of neck scalp breast and Jaw stiffness. Mild relief with opiod and NSAIDS is this normal?

No narcotics. if you are not getting relief, I suggest calling your prescribing physician and after stopping opioids and NSAIDS and ask about the use of a steroid dose pack ( Medrol (methylprednisolone) or prednisone ). Narcotics will not cure the inflammation.
