Sep 3, 2015 · Brachial Plexus Injury / C-5 palsy - how to deal with pain? in Brain & Nervous System

C-5 palsy/Brachial Plexus Injury
7 month ago had c 3 & 4 and 5 & 6 surgery, not sure what the procedure was called. Left arm was diagnosised with C-5 palsy…limited use of hand and wrist. No lift in the arm, very little left to right movement from elbow. Recent nerve test by neurologist said he is “cautiously optimistic”.. .? This injury occurred while being adjusted by chiropractor, 4 disks crumbled crushing the C-5 nerve for 12 plus days before surgery to release compression of nerve. Leaving my left arm paralyzed. After 7 months now, not much improvement. Initially excusiating burning pain at the top of the shoulder. This pain lasted 33 days! Since then muscle feeling fatigue with cramping type pain. Tolerable. Do not sleep well.
