Pain and tingling in arms and feet.

I have pain in my arms and hands along with pins and needles. Although, I am now experiencing pain and tingling in my legs and feet. In the last few days I have begun experiencing aching pain in my lower back and neck. It mainly seems to be on my left side. I saw an osteopath who told me it was thoracic outlet syndrome but doesn't know why it is affecting my lower body?

When you are getting symptoms in arms and legs I would always recommend a neurological consultation. You are right, TOS won't affect your legs.

There are really a heap of possible diagnoses, and a neurologist is the right person to start with.

Sorry I can't be more helpful. Let us know how you progress and what the neurologist finds.
