In brief: brachial radial nerv

If the brachial plexus is affected can damage axillary radial musculocutaneous nerve may be affected also trigger points along the whole arm may become irritated which can mimic actual nerve damage.
Electrodiagnostic testing will elucidate true nerve damage. Surgical repair and opysical therapy strongly considered in this case.
