Oh pain in the neck!2:08 PM
I've mentioned my annoying neck before haven't I? Well seems that I can't really do certain things without the impending muscle pain, so last week I overdid it.
The kids were at school and I was all into cleaning and rearranging and I completely redid the living room, and not it wasn't a case of adding a decorative pillow or changing curtains...Noooooo, Sandra had to do the whole shebang. I moved everything around which included but not limited to pushing a big sectional couch, a computer armoire, 2 computer desks, a big huge tv etc etc.
If that wasn't enough, then I went outside the next day and proceeded to get rid of all the old lemon tree branches that have been falling down. Listen people, these branches are heavy and they prick too. So I pulled them all the way from one side of the yard across to the other side and then hauled them over the fence and into Curt's big truck.
Why?!?!?! Why do I subject myself to these things when I know I'll suffer later?
So for the past 3 days I had a pain in my back, on my right side shoulder blade area, and my wonderful husband massaged it for me and I massaged it myself, I kinda contorted my arm and fingers to try and bring some relief and then last night it happened.....the pain from my back subsided but then it moved up to my neck, right at the top of my spine. It moved there and pitched a tent. Dagnabit!!!
I spent all night tossing and turning and woke up this morning which such pain that it makes it hard to turn my head to the right or the left, as a matter of fact it's all so tensed up and sore that it's making my head feel like it weighs a ton. UGH!
I can look down and put my chin to my chest, I can lay my head on my shoulders on both sides but if I try to turn it or look up then WOO WEE.
So I've used some tiger balm and a heat pad and now here I sit, all miserable and smelling like an Olympic Athlete minus the Gold Medals. Pretty sad!
I've made the beds, I've done the dishes and that's it, I'm not moving another finger, not while I feel like this, maybe tomorrow it will start feeling better and I'll ease into doing things.....but for now....lesson learned, do NOT rearrange a room on your own or haul branches around. You will pay for it later, boy will you pay for it.
