Our expert says:
the advice about pressure points is not a bad one but i am slightly pessimistic seeing that you have such a chronic probem. i have a question for you: does the pain also radiate into your arm? If you look at our website under "Thoracic Outlet Syndrome" do any of the features remind you of your symptoms? Another problem to consider is the "Cervical Facet Syndrome" where the little joints behind the vertebrae cause pain in the neck and the surrounding tissues. An injection is given into the joints called "facet block" which can give a lot of relief.
hope you will be helped,
Dr Joe de Beer
