Swollen chest

by Musa Khosa
(South Africa)

Thanks for your time and responses. have been to 4 different GPs who tell me not to worry, but a 5th one gave me all the reasons to. Do you think I should contact a physician first before doing a blood test?

Hello again, Musa. As a general rule, the doctor on the ground should carry far more weight than some unknown on the internet! They can examine you properly after all.

Follow your instincts. Which of them took the most interest, examined you properly and thoroughly and showed the empathy? I hope at least one looked for lymph nodes in the armpit and groin for example.

I am simply saying that we should rule out other more serious problems; they are not common but certainly occur.

And even if the diagnosis of Tietze's syndrome is established, I am afraid I have no proven treatment to offer.

I have personally developed an interest after puzzling cases have troubled me, and have a protocol for treatment. Perhaps it is time to see a local chiropractor after you have had these blood tests, and then he and I can collaborate.

Keep to this same thread in adding more comments.

Good luck; try not to let it get you down, that only adds to the problem.

I most definitely will let you know. I'm in Limpopo province, South Africa.

At least little C-19; keep safe, mask up.

Once again thanks for your comments and advice. You've helped me a lot. Will look into finding a local chiropractor and contact you if/when necessary.

My pleasure, keep well. Remember, what you eat and whether you exercise in one way or another has a profound influence on whether these mysterious conditions get better, or not. Whether you get the C-19 or not. Aim for at least 7-10 coloured foods every day; spinach, butternut and beetroot. And fruit like apples, plums and berries too have the phytochemicals that protect us from inflammation.
