I've had tietze's syndrome now for 7 years, it effects one of my lower ribs rather than the upper which is the norm for tietze's. Over the years I have tried steroid injection, lidocaine patches, captsan patches, numerous medications and have had 3 operations to remove cartilage that has fallen off. Does anyone have any advice on what else to try? Does anyone else have this syndrome effecting the lower ribs? Has anyone else needed operations to remove cartilage thats floating around? My GP isn't particuarly helpful as noone at the surgery have a clue what tietze's syndrome is or expect it to get better by itself within a few weeks of diagnosis.
Thanks for reading, hope someone can help!
