Well, there are no guarantees that any medication will actually help anyone, so there is really no way we can answer that. We are also not medical professionals.

What medications has she tried?

Has her doctor suggested she try this?

Synap Forte contains Acetaminophen and Propoxyphene, possibly Caffeine and/or Diphenhydramine, from what I am finding listed.

The Propoxyphene is a very mild narcotic pain reliever and the Acetaminophen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory.

I had a stroke in May 2010 and have since had incredible pain in my left shoulder generating down to the arm, this pain is not a muscle pain and I feel it in the bone. The pain was actually there before I had the stroke but after a while it got better with antiinflamatory drugs and pain killers. Since the stroke I have been on numerous medications, have had x-rays and various tests so much so that my medical is now up and I have to pay cash for any further treatment. I can not afford any more tests and all I want is relief from this pain and to be able to function normally from day to day, cooking, cleaning etc. I just need to be able to sleep one night without pain. I am at the stage now where I don't care whether my arm is amputated or not. Any suggestions??
