I was diagnosed with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome in my left arm about 6 years ago and have since underwent 5 surgeries. First they removed muscle and scar tissue in my brachial plexus (near the collarbone), a few months later they removed my first rib (same incision), next it was a carpal tunnel release, followed by an ulnar nerve transposition and most recently a guyon's canal release. Today I had a Nerve Conductive Study as well as Electromyography - both of which sucked. The electromyography was extremely uncomfortable. They poked me with a really small needle in various places in my arm and neck, then they would wiggle the needle around as I would make specific motions in my arm. It totally gave me the willies! They confirmed that I have nerve damage stemming from my t1 and/or c6 vertebrae. I've tried just about every pharmaceutical under the sun: muscle relaxers, anti-convulsants, anti-depressants, and all of the narcotics. Nothing provides relief like MMJ does. I recently moved to St. Louis from California so I no longer have safe access to meds. My surgeon recommended medical marijuana, alas it's not legal here. Does anyone else here suffer from nerve damage or nerve pain? Do you find relief using anything else or is MMJ the ticket?
