Dear Johan jvr

Thank you for visiting

I suggest that you consult an Orthopaedic Surgeon, to examine you, as you are experiencing pain which causes insomnia. He/she will have an x-ray and ultra-sound of the shoulder done, in order to make a diagnoses and to start the correct treatment.

You can take Myprodol, two capsules, four times a day, to relieve the pain.

Kind regards
