Mar 23, 2015 I'm dealing with some pain in my right brachioplexus. It's been ongoing for almost 5 mnths now and no matter how I switch up my arm routines I can not stop the pain in the shoulder. I have a nerve disorder called reflex sympathetic dystrophy I've had it since 2011. It effects my right side unilateral, sometimes when I go hard core and do arms more often the pain is minimal sometimes it's worse. I have been having a lot of pain in it lately and numbness of the limb especially while sleeping. The only thing I added to my routine is Arnold's to build up my shoulders so my traps wouldn't look huge compared to my lack of shoulders. I seem to have the definition I wanted from the Arnold's but the pain is unbearable currently. Does anyone know a different routine for building up shoulders that might be less strenuous on my brachioplexus? I'm open to any advice or ideas to take the strain off the shoulder while still allowing me to reach my goal. Shrugs seem to only target my traps when working out, had an ex point out I use traps often when doing most my workout so I don't wanna over use traps and not hit the shoulders. Thanks again for any help you can send my way!!!!
