My mother is experiencing sever pain and weakness in upper arms mostly left arm but both arms are affected. She also has type 2 diabetes and end stage liver disease (acryptic non-alcohol related cirrhosis). The arm pain is main complaint at this time and is often unbearable. She has difficulty doing most daily living task such as getting out of bed,bathing, dressing... I have discovered symptoms of Parsonage-Turners Syndrome. Does anyone have any other information or knowledge?? As usual her complaints are not acknowledged by her doctors. I really can't even get them to order an xray! i am in process of finding a new doctor.
