I’m Paralyzed

What I’m trying to say is…I have a CRICK IN MY NECK!

I woke up yesterday and felt just fine.  Then I felt really tired so I laid back down for a couple of hours.  When I woke up, I had a slight crick in my neck.  It got worse and worse as the day wore on until it was an effort just to hold my head up.  I can’t move my head now without my neck locking down with spasmodic pain.

I’ve been taking muscle relaxers and pain relievers and had heat on it, but nothing has helped.

I’m an invalid.

GAH!

So…that’s what’s been happening in my world this weekend.  I’m a real joy.

  3. Oh dear! Don't ignore that for too long! If it's not responding to your efforts to feel better, you might want to see a Doctor. Not to be an alarmist, but meningitis comes to my mind with the pain you're describing. Take care of you! How miserable!

  4. I totally hate when that happens to me! I feel your pain... The older I get the worse it feels when I get one. The only way I know of is to let it take it's course. Sometimes it takes a few days for that muscle to relax. Take care girl.

  5. Eek! I hope that it passes soon. Usually when that happens to me it lasts for a couple of days and then goes away on its own although sometimes I'll go to a massage therapist to speed up the healing.

  10. Would you like me to add to your misery and send you a wonky knee, a couple of back spasms, and some vertigo? Here's the deal: once you take possession of my ills, you cannot send either them or your pains back. You can, however, send them onto someone else.

    Feel better.

  11. Uggh, I totally feel for you. Went through this last week...5 days of neck and shoulder spasms. Laying down with my head/neck slightly elevated was the only way I could sleep. Fortunately I got daily neck massages by my hubby who is a master at working out the knots. Helped immensely. Good luck, Pammy Sue...xjosie

  12. Years ago before my lower back pain inundated me, my trapezious muscle would spasm and it would draw that side of my neck down so that I'd be walking around cockeyed! It was horrible. I couldn't drive because I'd have to turn my whole body to see both ways at a stop sign. I'd have to stack pillows up so that I could lay at an angle to sleep.

    I feel your pain. Damn age.....

    Try a hot bath...it sometimes helps. Hope you're better really quick Pammy!

  14. Hi Pammy-

    Neck Cricks SUCK but right now I'll trade you- I've been sick with sinus and double ear infections, sore throat and bronchitis. Nah- wouldn't wish it on anyone esp someone I like. If it doesnt get better call the doctor!!

  15. Ugh!! Terrible. =( Take it easy and keep at that heat for it! I feel your pain. I once had it last for 2 months before I finally decided to go to the chiropractor for it. What a relief.

  18. Dear Pammy, sorry to read about your crick! Dr. Liz is baaaaacccckkkk! Are you using the Thermacare heatwraps? I found those to be helpful. Also taking an epsom salt bath helps. Just plug the overflow thingy on the tub with duct tape so you can fill it up really high (but not so high it overflows when ya get in...hee, hee) and then lay down enough to get your shoulders and neck in the water. Do it when your hubby is home so if ya need help gettin' up he's there for you. Remember, pain relievers are just that and are not nourishing your body. Take your cal-mag drink or tablets because that will FEED the muscles and nerves so they can relax on their own. Also light massage helps because it brings circulation to the area so the new blood can feed the tissue. I sure hope you're feeling much better by today!!! PS I'm lovin' your new blankie, you're so inspirational and thanks for your compliments you left on my blog!
