I strained my shoulder and have been taking paracetamol and ibruprofen for the pain and put on 7lbs in a week!

I know it's not PMT as track my weight daily for the last year and it's never gone up only down!

Could it be related? Seems excessive!

You are probably moving less because of the strained shoulder. Or comfort eating. Or both.

Definitely not comfort eating and moving the same amount as no chance to rest with all children!

To update I haven't taken any since Friday and my weight has dropped 5lbs so I do suspect they were making me retain water.
