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 is the swelling and inflammation of nerve bundles that send signals from the spine to the entire arm. The syndrome usually starts with sudden, severe, and sharp pain or burning in the shoulder and upper arm with no apparent cause.  However, after a few weeks, the constant pain goes away and is replaced by muscle weakness or atrophy in the upper arm.

Brachial neuritis also goes by the names Neuralgic Amyotrophy and Parsonage-Turner Syndrome. Because of the immediate pain symptoms, the disease is often misdiagnosed at first.

I can’t recommend this firm enough. They have an outstanding team that truly care for their clients…I have been awarded a fair six figure settlement.

When I say “they went to bat” for me…this Law Firm literally did just that. They persevered to bring the hard-nosed Manufacturer to settle and provide me some recompense for everything I had to endure which led to this suit.
