Hello Adam. I am Dr. Frank, an Adult Neurologist in NYC. Welcome to JA. The problem you describe of pain in a distribution of the shoulder girdle muscles, sounds like it is a transient upper trunk brachial plexus neuropathy, known as a "stinger" injury. I will attach a webpage that describes the usual symptoms, take a look at it, and let me know if you think it matches your problem. Stingers or Burners usually come from traumatic injury, as in football. But in your case, you have a chronic repetitive injury. So the question is do you have any reflex changes or muscle weakness that is focal? My suspicion is no, if your EMG was done of the shoulder girdle, included needle exam and conduction studies, etc. If you have questions about the study, you can upload it here minus your name, as this is a public forum and I can review it further.

Anyway, so if you have a normal exam, and EMG, then this must be a "vascular" type of brachial plexopathy, where the blood supply to the plexus, which comes off the subclavian artery, and the thyrocervical trunk, is somehow lacking. The weakness/numbness is therefore transitory, and not seen on normal testing, but all of this can be evaluated. The brachial plexus gets imaged using a special MRI, you get an MR Neurogram of the plexus to see if you have an ischemic injury.

Take a look at this webpage. http://orthoinfo.aaos.org/topic.cfm?topic=A00027 Then get back to me to discuss and I will reply. Or if satisfied, please remember to rate this service by clicking on the rating stars, as that is how I am compensated for this work thanks *****

Do i need to pay you if we talk on the phone
Neurologist: Dr. Frank, Board Certified Physician replied 1 year ago

Hi. Yes, I am not allowed to work for free. If you want me to call, you have to accept this chat, then put your number in that offer box, and then I can call you on Skype. that is allowed. The problem is Skype charges a fairly high rate for calls to Australia, so I could not talk to you for more than a few minutes. I could download Whats ap and try that as well Dr Frank

Your not working for free i made payment
Neurologist: Dr. Frank, Board Certified Physician replied 1 year ago

Hi. Please check your credit card company, you should not have been billed for this question yet as you have not clicked on the rating stars, so if there is a charge, you need to contact customer service by clicking on the link at the bottom of your page. From what I can see from here, it would have been a charge for $58. Please let me know if I am wrong, ok? Did you post any other questions? Dr Frank

So there is a mistake as you have not accepted this question, and I have not seen a payment from you. you can send an email to***@******.*** if you cannot find the link at the bottom of your page. I do not work directly for this company, but I apologize for their mistake. Dr Frank

Ok, but there is a disconnect, because your question came in to me rated as costing $58 to you. Something is wrong here. Contact customer service. Dr Frank

Neurologist: Dr. Frank, Board Certified Physician replied 1 year ago

I posted it to the moderator so you should be contacted. I did figure out maybe that you are speaking $81 australian dollars, which converts to $60.96 US dollars, so maybe that is the reason for that difference??? But you should not have been charged (yet). Dr Frank
