Re: Subclavian Blood clot/Thorasic Outlet Syndrome???
Hi Neil, I am a mom of a 19 year old girl that play Division 1 softball. After being seen by the team doctor twice for her pain, then being taken to the orthopedist back home, both of whom came up with incorrect diagnosis, we were just told today that she has Thorasic Outlet Syndrome. At this point, I am not even sure what kind of TOS she has, as we now have to go back for a second mri. this can be a really painful and scary thing to deal with. To reply to your question, Yes, if I were your Mom, I would definately go to a specialist and get his opinion on the clot. Neil, the worse thing that will happen is that the specialist will tell you the same thing your family doctor told you, and at least you will not be second guessing yourself. Let me know how things go for you. Best wishes! Pepper55
