Feb 17, 2017 · Severe arm injury resulting in numerous symptoms and no relief in Brain & Nervous System

I’m sorry to hear about your son’s health issues. Unfortunately my symptoms still exist. Doctors are very reluctant to delve into the brachial plexus in my region as post surgery scar tissue seems be a problem later and possibly more complications can develop where my lesion is located. I did have a shoulder labrum and capsule tear that had terrible adhesions everywhere that’s was all cleaned up and hence functions better but my entire left side still doesn’t function well. I have had extensive physical therapy to no avail. I do see a neurologist who specializes in headaches only that is helping me somewhat in that area. I wish I could provide more useful information for your son. Don’t give up. Medicine continues to evolve.

Yes I have on both my shoulder , neck and brachial plexus. I have been to Orthopedics, neurologists, and various doctors who state my symptoms don’t make sense. Thank-you for your response.

Thank you. This is what I thought as well but the neurologists and orthopedic doctors I have seen state that all my symptoms don’t tie to just a bracial plexus injury

Mar 30, 2016 · Severe arm injury resulting in numerous symptoms and no relief in Brain & Nervous System

I had an injury where my arm was caught under a 100 lb struggling dog. My arm was repeatedly pulled away from my body. I developed numerous symptoms that my doctors seem unable to diagnose, I’m hoping someone can offer some insight. My symptoms include facial numbness and also numbness down my arm into pointer finger and thumb. I also have pain and pins/needles feelings in neck and shoulder. I suffer from severe headaches and developed dizzy spells. Healthy up until this injury. My clavicle luxated and now grinds and pops. I did have a work-up for MS, all negative. I also have tried physical therapy, massage therapy, acupuncture, hypnosis, to no avail. Anyone have any recommendations for me? I have had MRI’s that show shoulder tear posterior and some increased signal near the divisions of my brachial plexus, doctors don’t feel these account for my injury.
