I have had a trapped nerve in my left shoulder for over a month now. I had 2 weeks off work because of it, which I have never had time off for illness, it is excruciating. The doctor put me on naproxen, diazepam and tramadol. Couldnt take diazepam made me feel horrible and didnt really help. I am now on Pregabalin, naproxen and tramadol, I feel like a zombie, it doesnt help as my arm pain is getting worse. Osteopath session is half hour each week which seems to make it worse. Has anyone else had this and what would you suggest? Im seeing the doctor tonight to ask for a scan if that is something they can do? Im just at the end of my tether. Im carrying on with a full time job, and mother. Everyone thinks im ok cos I am carrying on but its hard work.
