Suggest treatment for tietze syndrome

my 10 year old daughter has had severe chest pain since november 2010. She has seen 2 pulmonolgist specialist, a pediatric cardiologist and several MD's. We have been 29 times to the doctor. The pediatric cardiologist diagnosed her with Tietze syndrome. But he cannot treat her for this. He is a specialist in cardiology. So where do we go from here. And who do we need to see. It like having a child with colic x 10.

Hello and thank you for asking in HCM

I can give you some medical information for this syndrome
Tietze's syndrome has been defined as a benign, painful, non-suppurative localised swelling of the costosternal, sternoclavicular or costochondral joints, most often involving the area of the second and third ribs.It usually affects young adults under 40.The cause is unknown.
According to the history in my opinion yous should see a pediatrician rheumatologist for further follow-up of your daughter.

I wish a fast recovery for your daughter.

Thank you
