About 3 months following the onset of Parsonage-Turner Syndrome, I developed numbness in my lower body. Gradually over the course of 8 weeks, about 90% of the sensation in my lower body returned. The Parsonage-Turner also damaged my esophagus and one vocal cord. It's been about 8 years and I continue to have the numbness and tingling in my feet. Is it possible that the Parsonage-Turner is causing the persistent neuropathy in my lower body? See answer
I have been recovering from Parsonage Turner syndrome for years. I still have some pain, the fatigue is still with me and my quality of life is compromised. Can this develop into something else? Also, is it normal that I still have fatigue after 5 plus years? See answer
