Brachial Plexus Injury - Intense Neuropathic Pain

Posted by zcastillo @zcastillo, Aug 31, 2021

Hello, I am writing on behalf of my boyfriend, he has had a brachial plexus injury for 4 years, I would like to know if you consider that the intense neuropathic pain that he presents is a sign of nerve regeneration?

I would also like to know what could be some methods to alleviate these pains that are not medications

Hello @zcastillo, Welcome to Connect. I have no medical background or training but it seems like from what I've read that the intense neuropathic pain might be the symptoms of the injury. Here's more information.

"Brachial plexus neuropathy (BPN) occurs when nerves in your upper shoulder area become damaged. This can cause severe pain in your shoulders or arms. BPN may also limit movement and cause decreased sensation in these areas." — Brachial Plexus Neuropathy: Causes, Risk Factors, and …: https://www.healthline.com/health/brachial-plexopathy

Has your boyfriend seen a doctor or had any physical therapy treatments for the injury?
