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 an important bundle of major nerves and arteries pass between the head and arm. The space is small and damage to the neck can cause inflammation of the muscles in the area, which can then compress the nerves and result in symptoms.
Because the neck is a very complicated area, it can be difficult to identify the precise origin of your pain, and other conditions can mimic the symptoms of thoracic outlet syndrome.
