Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, CCSVI??

Hi everyone,

I was diagnosed last week with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome; however, my doctor tells me that all my other symptoms cannot be caused by TOS. These include leg numbness, tingling, twitching legs, abdomen, and feet (very small...only I notice). Also, in a vascular test, it was noticed that my feet were completely "flat" as far as getting blood to them...there is NO blood getting to my toes! I even get these lesions on my ...

The earliest I could see him was 2 days later and ...
