How to deal with Costochondritis pain?

The doctor gave me naproxen 500mg tablets and they help but I can only take them twice a day and between doses I get discomfort. It happens more when I’m driving even if it’s Just for a few minutes. Whenever I do get discomfort I do light stretches and apply cream such as icy hot and it helps for a bit but it only lasts for a bit. Are there any other methods/ways to deal with the discomfort?

I attached an image to show where I get discomfort/pain.

    You can take paracetamol in between your doses of Naproxin. I used to when I had arthritis.
