    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    I have Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, Severe Fibromyalgia, Small Vessel Disease & a syrinx inside my thoracic spinal cord. Recently I have been having the problem of while I try to bend my head downward, at all, I get an electrical shock throughout the upper chest, neck & through both arms. Went to see a doctor about it, and they are just as confused as I am.. Just wanting to find out if there is anyone that can answer just a possibility of what this can be!

    Hi and welcome to WebMD,

    I hope you'll keep pursuing answers with your doctors (if your doctor doesn't know, see specialists and/or get a second opinion). In the meantime, try posting on our Pain Management community . While no one online can diagnose you, they may have some ideas to look into.
