Of the three motions, the deltoid acts most powerfully in abduction. The C5 neurologic level supplies sensation to the lateral arm from the summit of the shoulder to the elbow. The purest patch of axillary nerve sensation, pictured here on the right, lies over the lateral portion of the deltoid muscles. This localized sensory area within the C5 dermatome is useful for indicating specific trauma to the axillary nerve, as well as general trauma to the C5 nerve root.

sensory nerve damage in fibromyalgia and autoimmune disease is due to an inability to metabolize vit B12. B12 maintains the myelin sheath. The myelin sheath protects the nerves of the spinal cord. The inability is due to missing digestive enzymes called protease. These enzymes can be replaced through diet. It will not help to take B12 supplements Without these enzymes, the myelin sheath will continue to deteriorate. Damage to the sensory nerves can lead to trigeminal neuralgia etc.
