Tingling in muscles? Please help, it's driving me crazy. What could cause a tingling feeling in the muscles of my shoulder? My shoulder has been stiff and sore for a little over a week, to the point where I can barely use it and have to use a heating pad

Tingling in muscles? Please help, it's driving me crazy. What could cause a tingling feeling in the muscles of my shoulder? My shoulder has been stiff and sore for a little over a week, to the point where I can barely use it and have to use a heating pad

The: The most important thing is that you keep using your shoulder normally. It sounds like you may have had a bursitis in the shoulder or another problem, and now the nerves in the shoulder may be irritated. If a patient has this and don't keep moving the shoulder, then the patient can develop "frozen shoulder". To avoid this, keep doing gentle range-of-motion exercises with the shoulder, such as climbing your fingers up a wall, or hanging your hand down and performing circles with it. If this continues, or you have continued pain, then it would be reasonable to consult an orthopedist. ...Read more

Can you use a heating pad to relieve pain from an ulcer in the intestines and stomach?

Can you use a heating pad to relieve pain from an ulcer in the intestines and stomach?

Ulcer pain: A heating pad is not going to help with ulcer pain. The relief for this kind of pain is avoiding spicy and greasy foods as well as high acidic foods. Medications like Zantac (ranitidine) and Prilosec as well as antacids like Mylanta can help to heal and sooth an ulcer. Most important is you see an MD, be sure you have an ulcer and then be treated under the care of the MD. Going it alone is a bad idea. ...Read more

Swelling from hit to shin from softball-should I continue to ice or switch to heat? If switch to heat, should I use heating pad or will icy hot work?

Swelling from hit to shin from softball-should I continue to ice or switch to heat? If switch to heat, should I use heating pad or will icy hot work?

Treatment options: If your injury occured 72+ hours ago then it is acceptable to switch to heat in an effort to deal with any swelling in the area. Icyhot doesn't cause the same healing effect of ice or heat. Topicals such as this are known as counterirritants that trick pain receptors, but really do nothing more than numb the area.

If you are having severe pain, or are unable to walk on your leg please have a xray. ...Read more
