Re: Swollen chest

Thanks for replying to my earlier question. The site couldn't allow me to upload pictures. The doctor provided me antibiotics because of the swelling, and the skin colour changes. I do not really have any fever but as for any swollen nodes, I think he might have said something about my lungs as well but there weren't any unusual sounds. I'm actually very worried.

Thanks again.

The first step is to rule out more serious, life-threatening things. Some blood tests are in order and your medical doctor I'm sure will guide you.

Unfortunately there is no scientifically proven treatment for Tietze's. I have worked out a protocol that helps but doesn't cure. See what your local chiropractor has to say.
