New here/Brachial Plexus Nerves

Hello, Im new here, just found these boards and trying to manuever my way around. I wasnt sure where to start posting, theres a couple of boards it might could fall under, so I picked this one. Anyway, Have any of you heard of Brachial Plexus Injuries? The brachial plexus is a network of nerves coming off the spinal cord. It controls functions in the shoulder, arm and hands. If you have injury to the BP, depending on the severity, it could result in paralysis of the arm and hand. I would like to continus this thread with anyone that would like to post about it. Thanks!!!

Re: New here/Brachial Plexus Nerves

I have been diagnosed with this. My right arm no longer works at all. I never had an injury though. I just quit working over like a 4 month period. Now they think it might be als as I have a strong family history. I find out in a few weeks. If it is not als then I will come back here and talk about the "brachial plexus neritis" diagnosis.
