     Brachial neuritis is a form of peripheral neuropathy that affects the chest, shoulder, arm and hand. Peripheral neuropathy is a disease characterised by pain or loss of function in the nerves that carry signals to and from the brain and spinal cord (the central nervous system) to other parts of the body. It is a fairly rare condition.

    Brachial neuritis is also referred to as brachial neuropathy or a brachial plexus injury. When acute brachial neuritis occurs, the damage to the brachial nerves comes on suddenly and unexpectedly, without being related to any other injury or physical condition. This is also called Parsonage-Turner syndrome or neuralgic amyotrophy.

    Brachial neuritis affects mainly the lower nerves of the brachial plexus, in the arm and hand. The brachial plexus is a bundle of nerves that travels from the spinal cord to the chest, shoulder, arms, and hands. It usually affects just one side of the body, but it can involve other nerves and other parts of the body, as well. Here is a brief overview of the different types of brachial plexus injuries Acute brachial neuritis. This type of brachial neuritis occurs unexpectedly on its own. It is characterised by sharp, severe pain in the nerves of the brachial plexus, followed by weakness or numbness. The cause of acute brachial neuritis is unknown.           
      Brachial plexus injury. Some people have pain and loss of function to the brachial plexus as the result of another type of injury. For example, babies can injure the brachial plexus when they pass through the birth canal during labor.

    Thank you for your warm welcome guys !  :)

    Hi @Alinabulina08 - & welcome from me too. You certainly are well informed about brachial neuritis. In the newborn such damage is also known as Erb's palsy, something I know about having worked as a physio a long time ago.
    You will find this group both friendly & supportive, & your input will be most welcome. So, thank you for joining us all, & I hope you enjoy being part of this community. :)

    Its really nice to see information on parsonage turner syndrome. I had the diagnosis 2years ago. A part from the acute pain in the early stages I was left with some weakness to right side, and some muscle loss to my tricep and pecs, lucky I guess, as this could have been much worse.
    Just managing it theses days.

    Hi again @Ash1972

    Just seen your response on this thread in relation to Alinabulina08's post. No doubt you will probably have spotted this yourself - but because this is an older thread going back to September 2020, you might not get such a swift or active response to your post here. 

    You never know though, somebody on the community might catch sight of it - fingers crossed :smile:
