Thoracic outlet syndrome is felt as numbness, prickling, pain or decreased circulation in the shoulders, arms or fingertips.
The thoracic outlet is a bottleneck through which a vital bundle of nerves and arteries travel between the head and arm. The space is tight and damage to the neck can cause inflammation of the muscle tissue in the area, which can then squeeze the nerves and result in symptoms.
Because the neck is a very intricate area, it can be tricky to identify the precise origin of your pain, and other conditions can mimic the symptoms of thoracic outlet syndrome.
