Chest pain, fatigue and dizziness. Do I have Tietze syndrome?

I am a sixteen year old female and have either Costochondritis or Tietze Syndrome . I believe it it Tietze because I have had pain for almost eight months now. Along with the usual chest pain , fatigue , and dizziness, I have also had excruciating headaches that are not a result of allergies, pets, or my diet. Is this a normal symptom of Tietze?

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for choosing H.C.M.F.
As you describe You had chest pain for 8months, fatigue, dizziness, and headache. These days costochondritis, and tietze syndrome are considered to be the same. In both cases there will be inflamation of the cartilages of the ribs, other symptoms will be due to secondary changes on the surrounding tissues.
The treatment includes analgesics systemic and patches. If beyond controle steroid local injections may be prefered.
I advise you to continuously in touch with the doctor , so that the recurrance of symptoms may be taken care of.
Wishing for a comfertable maintenance of the disease.
Best regards.
