Nov 7, 2018 · Parsonage turner syndrome * in Brain & Nervous System

I was recently diagnosed with Parsonage-Turner Syndrome and have some questions/concerns about the cause and treatment. My sister was also diagnosed with same thing by a different Dr and was given different treatment plan. We both were at a health spa/wellness center and received acupuncture while there. I started with symptoms 2 days later with sharp, excruciating pain in my right scapula which radiated into my neck. I could not hold my head up straight for 2 days but am now feeling a little better. I did start a Medral dose pack and was given a muscle relaxer as needed. My sister was prescribed same thing as well as physical therapy and an EMG test. My doctor did not seem impressed that both my sister and I had acupuncture and were diagnosed with this syndrome. Is there anyone out there who can shed some light on this unknown condition? Thanks!
