This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

I am sorry you are having these pains.

you may need to ask for xrays to check on the bones

and blood test to check for rheumatoid arthritis

you should use ice packs on your bones to help decrease pain.

Is algesal cream right for it it's strong painkiller what does it mean when algesal cream burns
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
My doctor gave me this cream before but I brought some more

analgesia cream often burns the skin to distract the nerves from pain under the skin

that is how they work.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I will see how my arm goes if it gets worse I will go back to my doctors and tell her I am still having a lot of problems with it
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
What is algesal cream used for? I am using it
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
what does it do?
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
The cream must be working on my pain in my arm

analgesia cream is used as a safe way to distract pain nerves in the area to decrease pain deep to the skin.

sometimes it works for minor aches and pains

sometimes it doesn't work for more severe pain.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Thank you for that information
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
How come I keep feeling a bone move in my shoulder? My doctor doesn't know that information
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I keep feeling a bone moving in my arm my doctor doesn't know

you could be having severe arthritis or dislocation of your bones in your joints

some patients don't make enough collagen in their joints to keep their joints stable.

you could be having easy dislocation of your joints.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Why do you mean? Explain please
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Sorry phone playing up what do you mean

you need more testing to find out what is going on with your bones and your joints.

xrays can look at your bones to check for joint problems and arthritis.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Oh dear ***** I will see how it goes if I still have a lot of problems with it I will go back doctors and tell my doctor I keep feeling a bone moving in my arm and the pain and symptoms I am getting and tell her it hasn't got any better

I suffer with painc attacks too and depression but I don't like taking tablets

with your bad anxiety symptoms, you should talk to your doctor about treatments for your anxiety symptoms

medications like sertraline, fluoxetine, paroxetine can help decrease your anxiety symptoms

diazepam, clonazepam can help

hydroxyzine can help decrease anxiety symptoms

you shouldn't be using alcohol to treat your anxiety symptoms

many patients treat their own anxiety symptoms with alcohol when their anxiety symptoms are not well treated.

depression and panic attacks are also treated with those medications.

if you don't take medications then you will continue to have depression and panic attacks.

the alcohol is damaging your stomach lining and will eventually damage your liver
