Thoracic Outlet Syndrome to Fibromyalgia
Hi there ,
I have a bad case of TOS and had a rib risection 2,5 years ago. I now get back ache , pin and needles in my legs , feet . I get cold in different places below the waist. I am seeing a physio currently 3 times a week .She seems to work on a different part of my lower back every time , where ever the pain is at its worst . My Gp diagnosed a pinch nerve in my back . I have also started having a TOS flare up. Do you think I have developed Fybromyalgia .

Hi Jeff,
It could be. I just think your dr should first refer you to a neurologist to exclude other problems like neuropathy.
