    The only thing that would help my arms when they hurt was heat..which I am sure you have tried. You need a break from all this crap. I hope you get relief soon.
  • i have just ordered more pain killers .i am sick of taking them .i would give anything for 8 hours unbroken sleep and a day with no pain ..{i have been using radion B spray}

  • What's TOS stand for?

    Sorry, can't remember.

  • I seen the subject title here and who it was from and was like "oh no" :O

    I am SO sorry to hear your experiencing even more pain :(

    Maybe go back to the "old" method of heat for 20 ice for 20 and see if that helps :??

  • is thoracic outlet syndrome its like the back ache and leg pain but you get it in your shoulder and arm and hand {i was born with an extra rib } it took 2 years to get a diagnosis nut now i know what it is i have had the symptoms since i was at school i remember in PE lessons i would get pains in my arms and when swimming i would be aching more than a normal person would ..but its only as i have got older its started to get worse ..thankfully it is not there all the time and as bad as it is i know it will go ..but whilst its here its as bad as any lower back ache
    hope that has answered your question Judy
