What causes tietze syndrome?

I have been diagnosed with having Tietze syndrome and had it for over 15 months and it is making me feel very depressed as i am usually a very active person and it is also affecting my work i have had to go to part time hours and i am at the end of my tether, apart from the anti inflammatory`s is there anything out there that can make me feel human again and lead a normal life as i also feel that it is now beating me mentally

Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Tietz syndrome is costochondritis and it is 100% treatable.
So follow these steps for better symptomatic relief in Tietz syndrome.
1. Avoid stress and tension, be relax and calm.
2. Avoid bad postures in sleep.
3. Avoid heavyweight lifting and strenuous exercise.
4. Avoid movements causing pain.
5. Wear chest belt or rib belt to avoid movements of affected areas.
6. Take combination of painkiller and anti inflammatory drugs.
Don't worry, you will be alright with all these. And don't feel depressed. You will definitely improve with all these.
