Thoracic outlet syndrome is felt as numbness, prickling, soreness or decreased circulation in the shoulders, arms or fingertips.
The thoracic outlet is a narrow space where an important bundle of major nerves and arteries pass between the head and arm. The space is tight and damage to the neck can cause inflammation of the muscle tissue in the region, which can then constrict the nerves and result in symptoms.
Because the neck is complicated, it can be tricky pinpointing the precise source of your pain, and other conditions can mimic the symptoms of thoracic outlet syndrome.
