  • 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? Click here for answer
