Dr. P. Jyoti :

can you clarify what you mean by mst?

Customer:

morphine mst continus 30mg just swapped over from methadone yesturday

Dr. P. Jyoti :

ok

Dr. P. Jyoti :

this pain is not likely to be related to that

Dr. P. Jyoti :

since you had it after waking up i would consider muscle cramp to be most likely

Dr. P. Jyoti :

muscle cramps can occur after a night's sleep

Dr. P. Jyoti :

from some awkward position during the night

Dr. P. Jyoti :

try with warm compresses first

Dr. P. Jyoti :

heat a towel and then apply on the area

Dr. P. Jyoti :

also do gentle stretching exercises

Dr. P. Jyoti :

this would usually be sufficient for a muscle cramp

Customer:

ihavnt taken my morning dose yet my last dose was 2 oclock in the morning last night

Dr. P. Jyoti :

but you also need to observe carefully

Dr. P. Jyoti :

take your morning dose as advised

Dr. P. Jyoti :

no need to withold from it

Dr. P. Jyoti :

it will also give relief from the pain

Dr. P. Jyoti :

however as i was saying you need to observe carefully

Dr. P. Jyoti :

if the pain does not seem to be getting better gradually with stretching and warm compresses, other possibilites need to be ruled out

Dr. P. Jyoti :

it could also be something like a kidney stone whichcan cause this pain

Customer:

i also talk 10mg zolpeidem for sleep last night

Dr. P. Jyoti :

ok thats all right

Dr. P. Jyoti :

not the cause of the pain

Dr. P. Jyoti :

i would advise

Dr. P. Jyoti :

go for warm compresses now with gentle stretching exercise

Dr. P. Jyoti :

if the pain continues or gets worse, then best to show a doctor

Dr. P. Jyoti :

it could be soemthing like a kidney stone

Dr. P. Jyoti :

but most likely cause is a muscle cramp and warm compresses and stretches should be sufficient

Dr. P. Jyoti :

take care

Dr. P. Jyoti :

any questions?

Customer:

if it were a kidney stone wouldnt the mst relieve the pain i have

Dr. P. Jyoti :

yes it would help to relieve the pain

Dr. P. Jyoti :

so take the mst as advised for you

Dr. P. Jyoti :

but also do the compresses and stretches

Dr. P. Jyoti :

and if pain continues show your doctor

Dr. P. Jyoti :

tests like ultrasound of the abdomen may be required if pain persists

Dr. P. Jyoti :

take care
