  • Case Presentation A 1 year and 8 months old girl was brought in the outpatient department with a painful right lower limb present since three weeks. The pain made it difficult to sleep at night. There was no previous history of trauma or infection.[austinpublishinggroup.com]
Pain
  • Disorders of the brachial or lumbosacral plexus cause a painful mixed sensorimotor disorder of the corresponding limb.[merckmanuals.com]
  • Discusses physical agents and therapeutic exercise in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of disorders that produce pain, impairment, and disability.[books.google.com]

Weakness
  • Usually, weakness develops and reflexes decrease as pain resolves. Severe weakness develops within 3 to 10 days, then typically regresses over the next few months.[merckmanuals.com]
  • This can result in pain (radicular pain), weakness, numbness, or difficulty controlling specific muscles.[icd.codes]
  • The severity of muscle weakness can vary greatly, ranging from mild weakness that may be barely noticeable to, in rare cases, almost complete paralysis of the affected muscles.[rarediseases.org]
  • Disorders of the neuromuscular junction produce painless, often fatigable weakness without sensory loss. Muscle Muscle disorders produce wasting and weakness without sensory abnormalities, although cramps and myalgias may occur.[neupsykey.com]

  • Although the pain characteristically persists for 1 to 2 weeks, as in idiopathic brachial plexitis, in some patients pain may become a disabling symptom, lasting many months.[painspa.co.uk]
  • In severe cases, affected individuals can be left with significant disability that can impact their ability to work and perform common tasks.[rarediseases.org]
