Aris

800d

Hi there! You can call me Aris. I have been struggling with TieTze’s for quite a few years. I’m just looking for some advice, and to see if others have the same symptoms as me. When I was first diagnosed, my doctor said it would go away…..that was about five years ago. I guess my first question is, Is it normal for this to be a chronic illness? TIA everyone!

      Is this the same as Chistochrondritis? My doctor told me it may never go away. I was diagnosed in March 2021. It was extreme pain. Thank God the horrible pain is gone, but I struggle daily with pressure and tightness in my sternum and under my breast bone. Is this how yours feels? I am trying to figure out I'd my symptoms are comparable to others.

        @pansies I've had it for the past 4 or so years.. I find that I can go a long time no symptoms or I can go a while with daily symptoms. It's pretty much the same as what u say, Mines mostly in the chest sternum area also. I'll start to cough like asthma when it gets too tight.

      I have been struggling since 2019. Proper management with muscle building, back stretches, and rest are all crucial

      I have had it since I was 8. I also have fibromyalgia and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. It has gotten less noticeable for me but it has never gone away
