Dear Sir,

Sorry for the late reply. I was stuck up in a long surgical procedure. Sorry to hear about your problem.
You currently have two problems in your right upper limb - one is the degenerative shoulder joint changes and other is the symptoms in the shoulder and the hand, then both the conditions require treatment.
For the shoulder you have the following options - physiotherapy with local injections of steroids or arthroscopic surgery. Steroid injections will provide you pain relief for a prolonged duration but multiple injections can be harmful for the joint.
Surgery is a more permanent solution but the complications have to be discussed in detail with an orthopedic surgeon.
As far as the carpal tunnel syndrome is concerned, it involves a minor surgical procedure which provides permanent relief. This can be done even under local anaesthesia and you should discuss this with your treating doctor.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is known to be associated with symptoms during night time and this can be the cause of your disturbed sleep. One this condition is treated, you will be relieved of your problem.
You can send us the pictures of your MRI and we would be happy to review them and provide you with a more comprehensive advise regarding your problem.

I hope I have answered your query and you get well soon.

Dear Sir,

Very sorry about your problem and I can see that you are going through a tough phase. Steroid injections are not the solution according to me and they will do more harm than good in the long run.
Frozen shoulder is a problem which occurs commonly in arthritis or diabetes and is associated with painful restriction of shoulder movements. Thy gradually recover over a period of time with physiotherapy.

Hope you get well soon
