I don't know the extent of you injuries, but the brachial plexus is a bunch of nerves that carry pain and sensory and motor fibers to the arm. It's possible that there could be some nerve injury due to the clavicle fracture. You need to ask the orthopedic surgeon about this.

i have control of my hand
I understand. The first problem with nerve injury is most often sensory problems ,such as burning. Motor fibers are hardier and so it's common to have burning with normal motor strength.
