Suggest treatment for severe pain in shoulders, neck and lower back

Posted on Thu, 18 Jun 2015 in Bones, Muscles and Joints
Question: Good morning, I am a 52 year old female baker. My shoulders, neck and lower back hurt all the time. Some
times worse than others. I have tendonitis and osteoartheritis. I take 15mg. of Mobic everyday (not sure it helps). I need something for the pain because it causes me to miss work or not be able to do my job properly. I use Tylenol and Ibuprophen, Every cream gel and spray, patches. I also go to bed at 6 pm because I work at 2 am so I take Ambien some nights. I need relief from the constant pain. I do lots of stretches and ice after work but I am always in pain. What do you suggest ?

You can take tramadol preparation.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

If your pain is not get relieved after taking tylenol and ibuprofen, then you can take tramadol preparation for pain after consulting your doctor.
You need to do shoulder, neck and lower back strengthening exercises under guidence of your physiotherapist. Physiotherapy like TENS/SWD will be helpful in relieving the pain.

Hope this helps you.
