I was diagnosed last year with scapular thorasic syndrome. The dr gave me pain meds and PT. I still have a lot of pain in my left shoulder and and have recently experienced increased numbness on my entire left side. I'm only 25, is there something else going on?

HONEY, GET TO A PROPER NEUROSURGEON. tHERE IS NO SUCH THING AS THORASIC SYNDROM.

I've had such terrible luck with thorasic surgeries, I'm now a patient of mayo Clinic. I went through my diagnosis. So. get at least 3 opinions. they will all probably be different but you'll know what's best. Try and stay out of surgery. know when you go to a surgeon... they'll want to cut... ti's what they do.
Try IB profen for inflammation, watch your posture at all times hold in your belly, get to a physical therapist...... do these for 3 months before you consider surgery. Surgery is a domino effect in the thorasic.
Good luck! Be Well
