Post Brachial Neuritis/ Winging Scapula

I would like to see a forum for adults suffering from a winging scapula due to Parsonage-Turner Syndrome, brachial neuritis or a brachial plexus nerve injury.
I understand that the cause of a winging scapula is often difficult to determine (virus, anesthesia,improper positioning during surgery, vaccinations,falls with outstretched arms, mastectomy, and repetative strain have all been cited) and that much of the data on the internet is based on the assumption that BP nerve injuries that do not involve a severed nerve will heal on their own within 1 year.
Having communicated with numerous "wingers" in the past, I know that this is not always the case and that
many "wingers" develop the additional problems of frozen shoulder, FMS/MPS, cervical disk pathology, TOS, chronic pain, depression...the list goes on.
Winging scapula and it's related disorders can cause a great deal of pain and frustration for the "winger" as often the condition is trivialized and the patient is told to live with it.
I feel that information is lacking on this condition and that "wingers" are in desperate need of a forum to share their concerns with others suffering with what can be a very debilitating condition.
Thank you.
