Clavicle fracture there are more chances for healing and if there is no dispacement as such. Otherwise there are more chances for non union or malunion, consult an orthopaedician asap and use proper arm sling to support the fracture area and minimise the friction and muscle pull, follow your medications.

Working on night shift is good for health if not what are the measures to be taken.

Working on night shift is good for health if not what are the measures to be taken.
No Try not to work a number of night shifts in a row. You may become increasingly more sleep-deprived over several nights on the job. You're more likely to recover if you can limit night shifts and schedule days off in between. Avoid frequently rotating shifts. If you can't, it's easier to adjust to a schedule that rotates from day shift to evening to night rather than the reverse order. Try to avoid long commutes that take time away from sleeping. If you're working the night shift, expose yourself to bright light, such as that from special light boxes, lamps, and visors designed for people with circadian-related sleep problems, when you wake up. Limit caffeine. Drinking a cup of coffee at the beginning of your shift will help promote alertness. But don't consume caffeine later in the shift or you may have trouble falling asleep when you get home. Avoid bright light on the way home from work, which will make it easier for you to fall asleep once you hit the pillow. Don't stop to run errands, tempting as that may be. Stick to a regular sleep-wake schedule as much as you can. Ask your family to limit phone calls and visitors during your sleep hours. Use blackout blinds or heavy curtains to block sunlight when you sleep during the day. "Sunlight is a potent stimulator of the circadian rhythm, "Even if your eyes are closed, the sunlight coming into the room tells your brain that it's daytime. Yet your body is exhausted and you're trying to sleep. That discrepancy is not a healthy thing for the body to be exposed to.

Your circadian rhythm has changed so now your body would work accordingly. Take some safe homeopathic sleep inducing pills which would help you and even your body will not be habituated by it. It would just help in changing the rhythm. Drink warm milk with turmeric or nutmeg before going to bed.

It the fracture is undisplaced and plaster is applied correctly then it would unite in 4-6 wks. Chym forte should be stopped now. Calc to continue for 15 days. If you have doubts further kindly get in touch with an appointment. Thank you.

Body pain. Sometimes neck pain and sometimes pain shifted to shoulders and arms and hand.
It looks like you are anaemic. And also you have to check with your vitamin and calcium, if the bones are weak then automatically the pain gets triggered more as there is less energy during any metabolic activity.
