In 2005, I developed Thoracic Outlet Syndrome TOS) in my LEFT shoulder and arm and hand. Since then, I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Since then, I have lost the vision in my LEFT eye to Central Retinal Vein Occlusion (CRVO). Since then, I have developed pain in my LEFT breast along the outer ridge. Since then, I have developed plantar fasciitis in my LEFT foot, along with a tarsal problem in my LEFT ankle. I now have developed a cyst on the top of my LEFT shoulder joint.

I have always had a very bad varicose vein in my LEFT leg.

Can these problems be from one source? Are they related or some very bad form of coincidence?

Does anyone have any experience with so many different, seemingly unrelated things going wrong on only one side of your body?

By the way, my doctor says it is all a coincidence.
