I am sorry to hear that. I would try a heating pad and see if that works. You might also try some Bayer for the pain also.

[i]Hi bombshell, MAYbe it is safe to see the doctor again and inform him that the one he prescribes is not working and he can recommend another pain reliever![/i]

maybe it's an arthritis? just help him by massaging the part where it is painful! Hopefully, the doctor will find the medicine that will hit that pain!

Maybe your husband needs to visit the rehabilitation or Physical Therapy department for some consultation. Looks like his condition must be musculoskeletal, it might be a myofascial pain syndrome so he might need some therapy. Pain reliever alone cannot solve his shoulder and neck pain, shoulder treatment like electrotherapy, use of hot modalities like hot moist packs and ultrasound should lessen the pain and improve its mobility. Anyway, it's just a suggestion. I hope it helps!

Bone problem? Must be suffering from adhesive capsulitis of the shoulder. Is he having difficulties raising his arms overhead and by side? If he finds it hard to raise his arms because of pain, he needs to see a physical therapist and make schedules for shoulder rehabilitation and treatment session.

it may be a good idea to have his heart checked also. i've heard that sometimes this pain is an indication of heart problems.

the best way out is to keep it unmoved during day times say take a bandage kind of thing and rolled it over and over to keep it fixed and not movable in day times it will make your hubby to keep at right place in day times to avoid movements

If you live in my country, visiting a Traditional Chinese Sinseh (Doctor) would be a good choice. They will solutions like acupuncture and massage that will help relieve pain. If there's no such treatments in your country, perhaps he can try placing some warm packs around his shoulders. Perhaps that will help. Hope he will recover soon.

You should have informed your doctor about it cause your husband may be needing a higher dosage of the medicine prescribed. Or you can use other alternative for that, from heating pads, liniment, massage oil or simple a massage (except if your husband has hypertension). Make sure to check it on the doctor. don't take other medicines to avoid overdose or other similar effects.

Sorry to hear that,as well for me I'm suffering my neck pain for years due to hardworking in front of PC~wow~normally,you may need to be diagnosed by the doctor if it's just simply muscle tire,if yes,just release youself by avoid still post like staring the screen for hours and do have some good sleep ,as well as doing sport.If no,just like me,my cervical vertebrae hurt,I have to do some massage by professional doctor every month to release from pain~in the mean time,I have to do the things just mentioned for the muscle tire situation~ Just take serious about that I should say,good luck`~

Much better if you will give him a little massage with warm water in the towel daily, till the pain will gone.because that i always do if my hubby got a back or shoulder pain.

probably needs and MRI so they can locate just what is wrong and doc will give exercises for it but make sure it causes no pain while doing them
