Hey there, I am suffering from pain in chest from last days. Also there is some swelling in rib cage bone, on searching Internet I found my symptoms to be exact of Teitzes syndrome or costochondritis. There is severe pain in the chest whenever I rise up from any resting position,or when I breath heavily. I have attached image sourced from Google, showing the exact area of swelling. Please suggest what needful can be done at home, and to which doctor should I consult general physician or cardiovascular doctor. (In my latest report my TSH level came at 7.2, T3 and T4 were in ranged limit ).
