The brachial plexus is a network of nerves branching off the cervical nerve roots exiting the neck and extending through the shoulder region. These nerves are responsible for the muscular function and sensation in the shoulder, arm, and hand. Parsonage-Turner Syndrome (PTS) is a rare condition that affects these nerves and causes sudden pain and weakness in the muscles of the arm controlled by the brachial plexus. There is no known cause.
