  1. Jagdeep,Hope this helps; Symptoms of Thoracic Outlet SyndromeThe medically established symptoms of TOS may include Numbness, swelling or tingling of the arm, shoulder and handPins and needles feeling down the armA “heavy feeling” in the armTingling feeling in the hands, especially the pinkie finger and the one next to itColdness in the hand and arm due to decreased blood circulationThe arm and hand may swell up and the blood vessels may appear more pronounced and “bulgy” Shoulder and neck painRestrictive movement of the neck arm and shoulder Bluish discoloration of the arm and hand due to decreased blood / oxygen flow. TOS Symptoms Based on Personal ObservationsListed above are the conditions medical doctors often link to TOS. Listed below are symptoms, based on my personal experience, I believe are often overlooked symptoms of TOS. Because TOS involves pressure on the nerves, muscles and the blood vessel to the head, eye and nose, I suspect there are more facial conditions caused by TOS than are often diagnosed by most doctors. In my case, and I suspect others, TOS caused a domino effect of imbalances on the whole left side of my head. And in turn I think I had some overall body alignment issues which caused the TOS. For years I went to opthamologists and optometrists for eye floaters and pain in my left eye, but they never found anything wrong. It wasn’t until I was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome and found a physical therapist who was able to treat the condition that I understood the cause of my eye problems. My physical therapist explained to me that my TOS was putting pressure on the nerves around my head and neck as well as restricting blood flow to my eye and nose on my left side. This pressure is what caused my eye to hemorrhage and my nose to bleed just on one side. Eventually, I was able to clear up many of the following conditions with physical therapy, trigger point therapy and yoga poses designed especially for TOS. Eye floatersWavy lines in my peripheral vision. (I’ve found I can bring this condition on inadvertently when I do yoga poses that tighten my shoulder muscles too much, and I can get rid of the wavy lines with yoga poses that looses up my shoulders and relieve pressure on my eye.)Flashes or “seeing stars”High blood pressure just on one side on my bodyA feeling of pressure behind the eye on the TOS sideEye pain Eye hemorrhage (bleeding in the eye)*Nose bleeds* just from one side of the noseHeadaches just on left side of my head Shoulder popping out of place (my left shoulder muscles were so tight at one point that once my shoulder joint popped out of place just from brushing my teeth.) I’m also much more nearsighted in my left eye than in my right. I suspect it may be at least in part from the TOS restricting blood flow, and the nutrients that blood carries, to that eye:

  2. It is nearly a year since i posted my 1st topic.as an update, i still have not change.i went to india to see doctors and people who might be able to help.that came with no joy.i had more x rays and mri scans done there, and they said that there is a problem. gave me medicine. injections and i still dont feel any better.i am now 25, and feel so low. i have no idea where to go what to do to sort this out. if anyone has had all of these pains and managed to sort it out, please let me and other people who suffer from this know.iv seen more chiropractors, therapists, herbalists and no luck.i feel i am losing the love for things i used to enjoy.

    • i forgot to add.the mri i had done in india, they said i have 3 mild diffused disks. i showed it to the consultant here and they said it was absolutaly fine. i also had an mri on my shoulder, they diagnosed that as Subacromial bursitis.showed it here, and they said its nothing to worry about. it will get better.i have heard of the saying time is the greatest healer of all, but how long does one wait? till they are old and they have 0% of quality of life?to what ever problems i have. i have lost 4 and a half years. its something ill never get back.

  4. I have the same problem, related to work transcribing all day. Saw primary care doctor who gave Soma, trigger point injection in shoulder, etc.; saw eye doctors many times, and allergist. The allergist helped with sinus part of headaches, but not searing eye pain (I would have to bathe my eyes in icewater to keep working at the computer everyday). I was about ready to try accupuncture when I started going to a chiropractor almost a year ago for the neck pain. At the time, I did not realizing the eye and shoulder pain was related to inflamed nerves cause by my neck and muscle spasm at the base of my skull. I began to experience relief from the searing eye pain following the chiropractic adjustments. I still go one day a week and am doing exercises to strengthen my posture now. The pain is about 80% better and occurs mostly at work now. If the pain cycle is not broken completely, I may try botox injections to rest the nerves and heal the neck. The chiropractor is the best I have been to in Northern California. Good Luck.
