Re: Sending medicines by post?

What would happen with me is that the nerve damage caused muscles in my left shoulder to go into crazy spasm. Ibuprofen (600-800mg, no more than 2400 per day) help deal with inflammation to an extent, but the usual hot/cold compresses and massage really helped. As well as relaxing into the pain.

The last episode happened in the middle of the night. My wife massaged my shoulder for a bit, then stuck her elbow into a point on my shoulder and put her entire weight on it. After I'd stopped screaming, the pain had gone. (Either that, or my nervous system is so terrified of the prospect of her doing it again that it no longer notifies me of pain in that area )

Re: Sending medicines by post?

Thanks a lot. I was recommended a course of six physiotherapy sessions by my doctor but because of Corona I have postponed doing them.
