Brachial Neuritis After Frozen Shoulder
I have brachial plexus neuritis. I am a 52 year old female - working full time - and struggling with this diagnosis. Two plus years ago I suffered a shoulder injury that led to frozen shoulder in my left shoulder. I had a
manipulation and went through lots of Physical therapy. Unfortunately, I then developed frozen shoulder in my right shoulder, and also ended up having that shoulder manipulated. During the ensuing Physical therapy, I noticed I was developed hypersensitivity in my upper right arm. It became progressively worse but was chalked up to frozen shoulder issues. Finally, over the course of a few days, the pain escalated and was unbearable, and my orthopedic surgeon realized it was clearly nerve pain and referred me to a pain dr. I was diagnosed with brachial neuritis. I am taking neurotin, savella, and hyrdocodone, but my pain is not controlled. I am also wearing pain patches. I have suffered from a bad rash as well. I would love to be connected to others and share stories of what has helped. Thanks in advance.
