Dear 60' s Man in his late 50' s
You may have compression of a nerve between two muscle heads in the shoulder or neck area or even in the wrist area ( carpal tunnel syndrome) First let a physiotherapist evaluate you early in the morning for signs of nerve impingement? Ipuprofen can cause slight water retention which may in the event of carpal tunnel syndrome cause swelling in the tunnel at the wrist where the nerve goes through. The symptoms are mostly in the hands but can go up in the arms too.
