CAUSES AND SYMPTOMS OF PAIN
Its main and most characteristic symptom is pain radiating from the neck to the tips of the fingers. It may also involve the scapula and the front of the chest. When you move your head, cough or other intense reflexes, you may notice an increase in your discomfort. The symptoms of the brachial cyst also include sensory disturbances in the upper limbs and numbness, which can even lead to paresis. The genesis of the disease is the narrowing of the intervertebral holes, which leads to pressure on the nerve roots of the cervical spine and to inflammation. An indirect cause may be, among others, degenerative changes occurring in this place long ago, which compress the surrounding tissues and nerves, contributing to the formation of tension. Due to the fact that the nerve roots are interconnected and dependent on each other, sciatica (in the same patient) is often present in addition to the shoulder joint.
