Coping and support

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Symptoms associated with thoracic outlet syndrome can be caused by a number of other conditions, which makes it difficult for doctors to diagnose the condition. Many people experience thoracic outlet syndrome symptoms for years before they are diagnosed with the condition, which can cause stress and frustration.

Be sure to discuss your concerns with your doctor if your symptoms persist and a diagnosis hasn't been made.
