Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Hi there.
This seems to be a case of wasting of upper limb muscles caused by involvement of the Brachial Plexus.
You have to get a NCV (nerve conduction velocity) test of the upper arm area done and get it evaluated by an orthopaedic surgeon.
Consult a physiotherapist who will put you on an intensive muscle strengthening program.
Take injection methycobalamine once daily for 15 days.
It will take some time for you to see results. be patient.
Good luck.
