Default Hello

I donít know where to begin. And after reading majority of posts here I think I might not be alone, so Iíll just start.
Basically like most on here Iím dealing with strange sensations going down my arms, and thatís where the similarities seem to end due to my high pain tolerance and my bodyís ability to bounce for lack of better understanding.
I have bilateral cervical ribs, costoclavicular syndrome and pecminor syndrome the last 2 appear to be vascular and neurogenic. I also have a split disc in my neck C5-C6.
At present Iím revisiting the diagnosis procedure due to sustaining a concussion that caused 5% memory loss issues, subsequently resulting in me forgetting I was looking into this 15 years ago.
Firstly I will say that I donít bruise, swell or break easily which is a problem in this diagnosis for all practitioners involved so far.
My list of incidents is a little different.
I was hit by a car at speed of 60km/hr (45m/hr) at 15, no breaks or bruising
Fell 1.5 stories flat onto my left side at 17
No breaks or bruising
Hit by car, speed about 40km/hr at 18
No bruising
Lost fingertips rhs recovery time 3 months 20yo
360kg collapsed onto my legs 2 months recovery 8 hairline fractures in my right ankle 21yo, no bruising no swelling
Tore a ligament in my right foot running slammed into the concrete with my right shoulder, no bruising or swelling
Frozen shoulder lasting 4 weeks 29yo
The last one was a concussion from hitting my head on a porch/ veranda awning of my parents place fell 8 meters or so, once again no bruising or swelling.
None of these injuries caused me any pain either.
In saying that my shoulder doesnít function properly, itís always clunky, my elbows constantly crack, my hands loose blood flow in certain positions, my shoulders, hands and finger go numb or tingly frequently and randomly. Iím starting to get sensations of blood flow blockages or something like that across my chest and collar bones.
Iíve gone from 70-90 hours a week in exercise since my frozen shoulder incident to now not being able to maintain my posture due to loss of blood flow in my arms. I see my next specialist in 2 weeks and will probably look into grimy cervical ribs removed, as well as anything else they deem necessary.
At the moment my mind is probably my worst enemy.
