Tietzes syndrome

Can this also include mid back nerve pain; feeling like it's pinched with what I call rib frez pain that you can not touch that area under the breast bone. Shooting nerve pain. ?

Yes, certainly. It's a bit of chicken and egg but I feel the origin of the problem is usually in the attachment of the rib to the spine.

P-A vigorous manipulation of the rib will aggravate the problem.
