I was diagnosed with having cervical ribs abroad at the age of 13. I was warned that when I am older things may get complicated.. However, I didn't realise how frustrating things could get. I am not 27, I have chronic pain in right side of neck and down my arm. Last night my right hand went completely numb and I freaked out. I get tingling down my hands anyway but I had never had it this bad. I have tried the physio says I have a mechanical problem and don't have cervical ribs.. Then I tried the osteopath, who suggests the doctors abroad were right and I do have cervical ribs. I go to the GP and he just says I have muscle problems.. I am soo fed up with it all. I no longer know which direction to take, I can't continue having painkillers all the time. The doctors make you feel like s*** and really don't have any empathy to how much it effects my everyday life. I am now considering going private but not sure if I need to see ortapaedics or vascular? Does any one have any recommendations of doctors who are willing to diagnose this annoying syndrome??
