Brachial Neuritis or Parsonage Turner Syndrome From a Vaccine

Can a vaccine cause Brachial Neuritis?

Yes, in rare cases vaccines can cause a severe reaction. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services lists brachial neuritis as one of the known reactions to the tetanus toxoid vaccines. These types of vaccines include the common (DTaP) diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis vaccine. However, other vaccines may trigger brachial neuritis, including the flu shot and the hepatitis B vaccine. It’s called a “vaccine injury” when a vaccination causes a severe reaction.

What is Brachial Neuritis?

Brachial Neuritis, also known as Neuralgic Amyotrophy, is a form of peripheral neuropathy that affects the bundle of nerves in the spinal cord connected to the chest, shoulders, arms, and hands. This can cause weakness, loss of muscle control and movement, and atrophy.

For example, our attorneys won more than $285,000 for a firefighter who suffered from a shoulder injury after a tetanus vaccination. Because our legal fees are paid separately by the federal court, he kept ALL of the settlement money and did not pay us ANYTHING from his compensation.

Symptoms of Brachial Neuritis:

– Severe pain in shoulder/arm
– Lack of muscle control in the shoulder or arm
– Lack of sensation in the shoulder or arm
– Muscle Weakness
– Atrophy in the upper arm

Sharp pain is generally the first symptom of Brachial Neuritis and after a few weeks, is replaced by muscle weakness or atrophy in the upper arm. Because of the immediate pain symptoms, the disease is often misdiagnosed at first, so make your doctor aware if you were recently vaccinated and are experiencing these symptoms.
