Our expert says:
I presume the cardiologist did do a stress ECG and blood tests to exclude heart disease and that is why he treated for Tietze syndrome. She need not see an orthopod, first let her get some physiotherapy treatment and she could maybe continue with the anti-inflammatories for a while longer. Tietze is not dangerous at all, just very irritating.
