Tietze Syndrome

Tuesday, June 18, 2019


Last night I had this happen. Again. It feels like what I imagine a heart attack would feel like. Pain, goes to the arms and neck. My ribs hurt a lot.

Funny thing? It doesn't say what I know - large chested women tend to get this more than other people. Why? Weight strain on the joints.

It hurts. Like you wouldn't believe. Thankfully it doesn't happen too much. I'd recently lost just over 8 pounds and then gained all but 2 back. Not sure if that has anything to do with it or not, but I don't like it.

What I didn't was is that it is it's own syndrome. Well. I refuse to have a syndrome. I will not go through this again. Unfortunately it's causing issues today too. I have to take ibuprofen/tylenol to help with the inflammation.

1. WW Smart Ones for breakfast and lunch.
2. Incredibly smart meal for dinner,
3. Tracking all my macros on SP - it's my favorite tracker, community, etc
4. Continuing to get in some fitness.

My youngest daughter is off for college this fall and I am looking forward to the empty nest! I've already started taking care of me, now it's time to continue. I feel suddenly like I can live for me and not for my children. It's very freeing and encouraging.

I am so ready to live for me and no one else. Yes, I'm still a wife and a mom. But I'm ready for me to shine.

It is time.
