I'm : I'm sorry to hear of your problem. I have a few questions that need to be addressed to better help you. Did you have a MRI of the cervical spine and emg? If so, what did they show? The prior doctor sounds as if he/she was describing a brachial plexopathy. While that might be the case your presentation would be odd. True neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome (tos) is more commonly seen in women when congenital. More common is a traumatic cause (i.e. Motorcycle accident, gunshot wound...). The differential diagnosis includes median nerve entrapment at the pronator teres muscle and/or carpal tunnel syndrome. Wasting is a concern and should cause you to have this addressed as some of these conditions are treatable. Good luck and well wishes. ...Read more

If you smoke around your child, will it give them the idea that it's ok to smoke?

If you smoke around your child, will it give them the idea that it's ok to smoke?

Yes: Your children aren't stupid. They watch and learn from the world around them, especially from the parents who they love and trust. They'll be most impressionable when they're young. Once they start smoking, it's unlikely that they'll quit-- even when they're older and mature enough to realize that adults aren't always right. By then: too late, they're addicted. ...Read more
