    I have as the title suggests Costochondritis/Tietze syndrome. I am currently applying for RMR and have been made TMU understandably.

    My question is has anyone else who has had the same condition got through their medical as fit or am i most likely going to be PMU?

    I was diagnosed with this around 2 years ago at the time i was advised to rest and not do anything too strenuous. Nowadays I find this has no effect on me when I'm running or doing circuits in fact training has become some what of a remedy.

    To be clear Costochondritis/Tietze is basically inflammation of the cartilage that connects each rib to the sternum which causes a varying amount of discomfort in the chest wall and it comes and goes as it pleases. It is treated with ibuprofen which gets rid of it within 2 or 3 days.

    Any advice would be gratefully received.

    Ask your CA to ask the medical cell that is what they are there for and will hopefully give you a likelihood of outcome.
