Numbness in right hand after accident
My brother had a accident 2 months back. After that, we went for MRI. On seeing the report the doctor said that brain is fine and there is no damage. At that time there was some stiffness in his neck and numbness in his right hand after 2 months of the treatment, his stiffness in the neck has gone but still numbness is there in his right hand. There is no improvement in that. Kindly let me know the reason for this numbness and what are the possible treatment for this.

It is traumatic brachial plexus injury. As the symptoms are improving, most probably it is going to improve. After a month of injury he requires ENMG to assess the extent of recovery
Next Steps
wait and watch. Get ENMG after a month of injury. use pregalin in the meantime

There is definitely more than one thing going on here. Meningocele is likely chronic but might be causing some of her symptoms. It is really a neuro surgical issue. Also chronic nerve change s along the root of the trunks of brachial plexus. And this injury made the case worse. Treatment for cord compression includes steroids and surgical decompression by a neuro surgeon. For numbness it's manageable by anticonvulsant s like gabapentine or pregabalin etc.
