Brachial Neuritis

The network of nerves that conducts signals from the spine to the shoulder, arm, and hand is called the brachial plexus. An inflammation of this network of nerves is called brachial neuritis.

Brachial plexus injuries are caused by damage to those nerves. Brachial plexus injuries can occur as a result of shoulder trauma, tumors, or inflammation. There is a rare syndrome called Parsonage-Turner Syndrome, or brachial plexitis, which causes inflammation of the brachial plexus without any obvious shoulder injury. This syndrome can begin with severe shoulder or arm pain followed by weakness and numbness. Symptoms may include a limp or paralyzed arm; lack of muscle control in the arm, hand, or wrist; and a lack of feeling or sensation in the arm or hand. Vaccines are linked to injuries of the Brachial Plexus.
