Recently I was commiserating with another blogger who was having a bout of neck pain. I gave her my sage advice of getting deep tissue massage because that had always helped when I had that problem.
Then it happened. That creeping spasm which started by my shoulder blade and ended up in the back of my head. I had ibuprofen, so I took that. It was pretty bad when I went to bed. There, but not too terrible this morning when I went to work. By noon I couldn't turn my head.
So I took my own advice and went out and got a massage at the fitness center I belong to. OMG 5 hours later I have thumping pain on both sides of the back of my neck, and I can't move my head in any direction without pain.
I did have some muscle relaxants from a couple of years ago. I don't know if I should bother going to the doctor or not. He can't fix it. I wouldn't mind being knocked out right now. It is too early to go to bed.
So I am sitting here with a shawl around my neck to keep the muscles warm, and I am only moving my eyes and my hands. I will knit for a while and hit the sack. I have to get moving, because I want to finish this little quilt this weekend. Grrr...
