    at the end of my rope. trying new physiatrist next week. i have tietz syndrome and diagnosed TOS so bad it's making training almost impossible (though i still go). even if i press 50s I get crushing non cardiac chest pain and can't raise my arms higher than shoulder level. is there a doctor in the house?

    good luck, sorry to say it but age and all that weight you move are catching up to you.

    if you've been diagnosed with tietze, why are you still working out? the only cure for that is rest and treatment.

    any pain in the ribs or sternum area?

    yup, though i have an ulcer so it's hard to tell where pain is coming from. ribs always hurt. i think years of roods and overload did me no favors.

    I'm in a different league, but last year I had some really bad rotator cuff problems, a little rest really turned me around.

    Rib pain could be indicative of costochondritis. it really sounds like some sort of chronic inflamation issue. Not really sure what it could be as there are a whole handful of things that could be causing CI. I'd definitely take time off, start taking some more anti inflammatory drugs, and stay the fuck out of the gym.

    Not sure what to tell you Kunk but to echo everyone re: rest - and I mean, at least two weeks - and wish you luck.
