Yesterday, we had some running around to do. We were so frustrated by the taxes, and Nick keeps hearing about people getting audited already, so we went and got our taxes done professionally. Ugh, right? Well, at least we'll know they are right.
Then, we had bills to pay, and groceries to get. While we were at the grocery store, I noticed the area where the tendon leads from my neck to my shoulder was sore- like I had twisted my head wrong, or slept on it funny, but since it was 5 in the afternoon, I don't think it was from sleeping on it funny.
When I got home, it didn't hurt, so I forgot about it. By the time we went to bed, I had completly forgotten it, and sat on the bed. Maybe because my position was different, or something, it shot pain up through my neck and shoulder again, but not unbearable pain. I could move fine, so I took a flexeril (I have them for when my back starts hurting bad), and went to sleep with it still kind of sore.
I woke up about 30 minutes ago, and couldn't move my head without extreme pain shooting down my neck, and shoulder. It took me a while to be able to get out of bed, and a lot of tries. Nick tried tugging me up by my hand, and it just burned so bad I couldn't do it.
I've taken 3 motrin, and about 1/3rd of a flexeril pill, and I have a heating pad around my neck. But my head is tilted to the opposite side- like my ear is almost touching my opposite shoulder. I can't hold my head up straight, or turn it at all wthout it hurting.
This sucks. It's some sort of a strain or pull- going to a doctor won't tell me anything different, and I already have the types of meds that might be perscribed-
Flexeril for muscle relaxation
Skelaxin for skeletal relaxation
Vicodin for pain (blah, avoiding that one)
So, I have all 3 levels of what they'd give me, so I'm just going to save myself the $25 co-pay that I pay at places like Urgent Care.
