Neuritis

Neuritis is inflammation of a nerve or the general inflammation of the peripheral nervous system. Inflammation, and frequently concomitant demyelination, cause impaired conduction of neural signals and leads to aberrant nerve function. The characteristic symptoms include pain and tenderness, impaired sensation, often with numbness or hypersensitivity, impaired strength and reflexes, and abnormal circulation and decreased ability to sweat in the distribution of the inflamed nerve or nerves. Brachial neuritis occurs when nerves belonging to the brachial plexus become damaged or irritated. The brachial plexus is a network of nerves that carry nerve signals from the spinal cord to the shoulders, arms, and chest. Damage to the brachial plexus can result in pain in the shoulder and arm area.
