Can a brachial plexus injury affect your breathing and swallowing ability in addition to arm, shoulder, and neck pain?

Can a brachial plexus injury affect your breathing and swallowing ability in addition to arm, shoulder, and neck pain?

Brachial plexus inju: A brachial plexus injury should not affect your breathing or swallowing as the nerves that control those functions are higher up. If you had an additional injury to the skull base or base of the brain then i would be more concerned with breathing issues and swallowing problems.

Can thoracic outlet syndrome or any other brachial plexus issues cause scapular instability/winging?

Can thoracic outlet syndrome or any other brachial plexus issues cause scapular instability/winging?

Winged Scapula: A "winged scapula" is a result of injury to the long thoracic nerve which innervates the serratus anterior muscle. The long thoracic nerve is made up of portions of the brachial plexus, namely cervical roots 5, 6, 7, so in theory, a brachial plexus injury can cause a winged scapula but it is unlikely to be in isolation of other nerve problems. Winged scapula is not typical in thoracic outlet. ...Read more

Mri c spine & brachial plexus showed minor disc bulge c6/c7, should I be worried and/or long-term? Also is this the base of the neck area? And what affects could this have.

Mri c spine & brachial plexus showed minor disc bulge c6/c7, should I be worried and/or long-term? Also is this the base of the neck area? And what affects could this have.

Depends: The effect of "minor disc bulge" would depend on if the bulge contributes to neural foramenal narrowing or central canal stenosis. The neural foramen are the passage ways for the nerves on their way to the arm. If foramenal stenosis becomes symptomatic then you would feel tingling in your arm. The disc bulge could retract or get bigger. C6/c7 is near the base of neck. ...Read more
