What is Brachial Neuritis?
Brachial neuritis is a form of peripheral neuropathy that affects the chest, shoulder, arm, and hand. Peripheral neuropathy is a disease characterized 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.
There are different types of brachial plexus injuries that can occur, those include:
- Acute brachial neuritis: This type of brachial neuritis occurs unexpectedly on its own. It is characterized 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.
Treatment for Brachial Neuritis
Most cases of Brachial Neuritis resolve on its own over time; however, your healthcare provider may give you corticosteroids for the pain while one allows for the healing process to continue. Since this disease can be caused by injury, in some cases one’s medical provider will encourage surgery in a timely fashion to repair the nerves in the brachial plexus region.
Can a Flu Shot cause Brachial Neuritis?
Acute brachial neuritis is a rare but important cause of sever shoulder pain with reduced range of movement or upper limb weakness. Due to the region that is affected by this disease, it could be caused by a complication with the flu vaccine. So, if you have received a vaccine and begin to develop any of the symptoms listed above, please contact us at The Greenwood Law Firm for further advising.
