Hello. My son is...

Hello. My son is undergoing tests. He has intermittent pain usually from above elbows to wrists. He apparently has a cluster of nerves in the empty space in upper chest?? Not sure how he was describing it. He couldn't remember the term. "Lewiston" or something like that?? He is booked to see a neurologist and other specialist in near future as well as scan. Just wondered if u could hazard a guess? Thx kindly.

Doctor's Assistant: Do you keep personal medical records to help track this?

I'm sure his gp is. While working with the referrals. Just wondered if u knew a common syndrome name. It's not common per say, but neither is it rare

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

He has poor posture from sitting long hours at a computer et al. They said this contributes to his condition. Otherwise quite healthy.
