Brief Answer:
gabapentin

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

Thanks for posting the query,

I suggest you to consult orthopedician to confirm weather the pain is due to neuritic or muscular origin. Which can be confirmed only by physically examination. If it is neuritic pain then a course of Gabapentin will give a better relief. But you need a doctors prescription for this medicine.

For time being you can take Tab. Nucoxia MR 2 times a day for 5 days.
Regular exercise for the shoulder should be done.
I suggest you to do a hot fomentation for the shoulder.


take care.
