Hi, in my opinion your brother has dome neuralgic pain and he is addicted to morphine.
As you say he is been suffering from regional pain syndrome and taking morphine for that. Morphine is a good analgesic so when he takes it his pain is gone,. Once the effect goes pain comes back.
I would suggest you to wean him from morphine gradually and try alternative medicine for his throat pain.
