For the past couple of days, I have been experiencing severe shoulder and neck pain. I cannot turn my head, lift my arms up or out, nor brush my own hair.
I went to the chiropractor yesterday and got adjusted. I was all out of alignment and was instructed to wear a travel pillow to support my head and neck if I was up out of bed.
If it's not better by tomorrow, I will have to go back.
This didn't just spring up overnight. I have been dealing with tight muscles in my neck and shoulder for a few months, but I thought it would eventually work itself out. It did not. Now I am paying the price.
You don't realize how much you use certain muscles until you experience pain doing what you would normally do.
For me, this has been a wake up to not neglect my health. I must begin to take better care of myself. I hope to have this issue resolved soon and get back to my normal life.
