Brachial Neuritis

      Dear Everyone,

      I have been following the forums for about 3 years now and don’t seem to recall anyone mentioning brachial neuritis. This is another very rare syndrome that affects 1 in 100,000 just like GBS. It mainly occurs in the right arm where a couple of weeks of pain is followed by a weakness. The reason I bring this up is that that is what my neurologist believes has happened to me. Being a syndrome, they don’t know what really triggers this besides those cases where there is an injury. But some doctors feel that this falls into the same category of GBS in the sense that it is the immune system causing damage to the nerves. That seems to make sense to me as I now know my immune system can become fooled, having given me GBS in 2007.

      So I was curious whether anyone else out there has been diagnosed with this?

      Thanks, and I hope those of you in the northern hemisphere are enjoying the end of summer.
