Diagnosed with costochondritis since Jan 2018 after a viral infection. I kept getting sharp pains on both sides of my chest especially the left side. Now is more bearable but pains come and go everyday, is this normal? Or is it angina? Pains dnt go

In brief: See a doctor

It could be normal because costocondritis could becomes a chronic pain

You have to make sure that the original diagnosis was right and you did not have shingles
