    How is TTS assessed and confirmed???

    In relation to its counter-part in the upper-limb (carpal tunnel syndrome), the signs and symptoms are classical. Patients often c/o symptoms, relating to median nerve compromise, that are worse in the morning. Nerve conduction tests are quite conclusive. Jamar dynamometer strength testing is consistently poor.

    How is TTS diagnosed? What are the signs and symptoms?

    Thanks for that Craig.

    I was speaking to a nerve-conduction-test-technician at the Epworth last year while he was assessing my CTS, and when questioning him about TTS, he said "I don't think it exists as much as 'they' think". I don't know who is 'they'. 'They' might be 'us'.


    I hope I am not confusing myself with SinusTarsiSyndrome. I must contact the tech again to find out for sure.

    I find a few of my TTS patients will complain of heaviness or fatigue in the foot.Is that common? As for cause,it seems to me like the tarsal tunnel is a crowded place.It has 4 compartments.There are muscles,nerves and blod vessels here.It could be a case of overcrowding.Of course,either ankle instability or sports that put pressure on the ankle are a major cause of it.

    I am not sure if our neurologists here in Canada are doing EMG/NCV tests different than in USA but I haven't gotten a single positive test for TTS. In fact I have had 2 Neurologists say to my patients that there is no such thing as TTS. One of my patients told me that when she was getting the testing done that the Doctor wasn't sure where the nerve was and was looking in a text book of anatomy to find the location (the pt wasn't too confident they did it right). Since then I feel I am doing my patients a disservice by sending them for that torture test. I may be wrong but I think that TTS is a clinical diagnosis. Does anyone know how technician dependent EMG/NCV tests are?

    I found this while researching a particularly interesting patient of mine.

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9850949

    The patient I was seeing had been experiencing chronic burning sensation to the plantar aspect of both feet.
    Treatment from a physician has been increasingly higher doses of amitriptyline with little success.

    I noticed he was wearing elasticated supports to both wrists and asked what he was using them for. He had bi-lateral carpel tunnel release surgery several years ago.
    I referred him off to a neurologist who has confirmed Tarsal tunnel syndrome through nerve conduction studies.

    The above paper suggest a link between the two conditions with narrowing found to both the tarsal and carpel tunnel's in some of the subjects tested.
