What is Brachial Neuritis?

Brachial neuritis is characterized as sudden excruciating, one-sided, shoulder pain, followed by weakness and paralysis of the shoulder and muscles. The symptoms vary depending on the extent of nerve involvement. It may due to recent illness, surgery, immunization, or injury.
