Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response

Thanks for writing to Healthcare magic,

I have studied your case,

These symptoms can be due to thoracic outlet syndrome,
There can be obstruction to blood flow ,

you need clinical examination from orthopaedic surgeon

I would advise for EMG-NCV study ,and MRI after clinical examination.
Mean while take methylcobalamine and pregabalin.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
