History of arm injury. Pain in severe weather, taking Ibuprofen. What to do?

I was in a car accident 10 years ago and had 2 plates and14 screws put in my right forearm. From time to time, my arm aches when there is severe weather approaching. Last week, it started to ache. Within 2 days, the pain was so severe that I cannot even pick up my car keys or IPad with my right arm. Ibprophian (800 mg) will help for a short time but I have sharp stabbing pain in my forearm and radiating pain to my shoulder.

What should I do?

Thanks for writing to us.
The increase in the pain specially during bad weather is due to the changes in the barometric pressures. This is short lasting pain and can be taken care of with hot fomentation and mild pain killers.
