Lhermitte's sign in thoracic outlet syndrome?

I have been diagnosed with TOS but also have Lhermitte's sign travelling to my affected arm and leg. Is my diagnosis correct? Please comment.

well imho that's a fairly impossible question for us to answer.. but i've seen mention of radiating pain due to the nerve compression you'd see in tos..
odd sx? no dx? check w/ dietitian
DRI=MINIMUM eg bit.ly/1vgQclQ
99% don't meet these. meds/lifestyle can affect levels
status can be low in ms & other cond'ns
'but my results are normal'. typical panels don't test all
deficits occur in 'normal' range
