I may finally have an answer to my pain in TOS. I'm ecstatic because after 2 years of worsening pain and no answer, I'm getting closer now. My recent EMG/NCV test was normal and the doctor, Physical Therapist and my Chiropractor all mentioned this condition at different times!


  • I don't want to say congratulations, LOL, because TOS isn't a walk in the park but I am glad that you finally may have some answers after all this time. You already know about my experience with TOS but remember that most TOS is NOT like mine and doesn't require surgery. Just keep up that die hard attitude and you'll beat this.

    Keep us updated, okay?

  • You got it. I'm hoping surgery won't be necessary.

  • Hey Chronic, I'm so glad that you are finally getting some answers. It does take a huge weight off, knowing what may be the problem, doesn't it? I hope that your docs can find a good treatment plan now for you, and you can get better!
    APROUD CANADIANveteranButNOTa doctor, my thoughts are my own
  • Absolutely smiley, it's a relief to finally be heading towards a possible fix!
  • Just wanted to know if you've heard anything regarding the TOS diagnosis. I haven't seen anything posted and you've been on my mind as I just saw my Vascular surgeon for a follow-up :(
