    I came across an article re Tietze's syndrome (not to be confused with Tietz a similar name but not conected)

    Apparently it is a virus that can be picked up during even minor surgical procedures, like scopes, that can give severe chest and uper back pain. I think it can also be picked up anywhere where exposure is high, like via dental work.

    It is an inflamation of the ligaments of the chest wall.

    I post this as I know a lot of us get this sort of pain.

    Since I had a TEE(scope into esophagus to see heart through chest wall behind ribs) I have noticed I am still getting a lot of chest wall and back pain 10 days after. I have had scopes into stomach with that pain lasting only a day. I do understand the doc was probing in that area for 35 mins so expected some bruising.

    Anyway I found this link and thought it may be useful for others.

    I don't know how to do that. I googled chets pain and this disease came up is all and it sounded like so many of our pains I thought aha!. Try googling it, the disease. Like I mentioned there is another that sounds like the same name but is some blood disorder.

    Love Anne C Sorry for being such a computer klutz.

    I thought I may have it, but I read about it and I don't think I do. I think my main problem is stress through the roof and GERD. Started on 1/9/06, too.

    I could have Googled that too, but with fibro fog, just didn't think of it.

    I still think I have a hair ball in my stomach. lol =^,,^=

    I haven't had a scope since before 1994, so I think I'm good as far as any virus or anything like that goes.

    Feel well!

    Hugs,
