Customer Question

Good Afternoon, 11 years ago I was in a car wreck that was pretty bad. I was told that the Brachial Plexus in my left shoulder was torn and my left arm is immobile but my fingers can move and I do have very bad pain
JA: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?
Customer: in my knuckles of my left hand. I want to know what vitamins, etc. I can take to help the nerves to heal?
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No. And there is no swelling just bad pain and of course calcium build up in my shoulder.
