Detailed Answer:
Dr. Hanif warmly Welcomes you!

Thanks for consulting at my virtual clinic. I have carefully worked through your case, and I can realize your health worries. Being your physician, I assure you not to worry as I will take care all of your medical concerns.

You have got a problem with your right shoulder girdle and there is rotator cuff inflammation. This is limiting your movements and there is pain all through the right arm up to elbow.

Shoulder rotator cuff is a combination of structures like muscles and tendons and joint cartilages and all the combined structures are supposed to work in harmony and if there is any problem with any component out of them, it causes issues with whole the limb.

The first step in management is Limit The Mobility. You need a shoulder sling support for at least 2 weeks along with medications.

Apply Bengay Ultrastretch Ointment and massage gently over all the areas of pain. Then apply ThermaCrae Heat Wrap around the shoulder and for the neck separately. It is best possible remedy for prompt relief. It gives heat to the structures deep inside and soothes a lot. Increases the blood supply and flushes the inflammatory products and all of this adds to the comfort of patient.

Take a prescription for:
*Fioricet with codeine for pain and a multivitamin Surbex-Z for nutrients sufficiency.
*Lyrica for regeneration and nerve support and to relieve the pain that is running all along the nerves.

Consult an Orthopedist for MRI of the joint and treatment accordingly if nothing helps anymore.

Hope I answered all of your health concerns . If you have further questions, feel free to contact me anytime. Always write my name in start of your question in future, and I will get back to you in no time. If satisfied, please give a five Star rating and don't forget to Close the discussion.

Have a wonderful time ahead.

I am on at at home detox from codeine phosphate 30mg of which I was taking 20 a day. I have commenced Lofexidine and have been on this for 2/7. The only withdrawal I m suffering is RLS, I collected a script for Quinine Sulphate 300mg about 45 minutes ago, will this work for RLS quickly? I need to sleep and RLS is the only symptom stopping me!

Hi there My Mother is suffering from sensations of freezing liquid in her stomach and also sometimes in her shoulders, back and hands. She has also lost her appetite and has been having a tingling sensation in her left shoulder from time to time. The symptoms make her feel frightened and hopeless. She did recently have suspected DVT as she lost the ability to walk very suddenly recently, but after a cocktail of painkillers and also an injection in the stomach in case there was a blood clot, she was then able to walk again, although she is due for a hip operation in the other leg, so she can walk as best she can. The codeine part of the painkillers caused severe constipation a couple of weeks ago and she had to be treated for that, but now she is suffering these awful freezing sensations. I took her to the doctor and they gave her an ECG which proved fine. Any advice would be a relief as I am worried about her; it has made her very very down.
