A Pain in the Neck

The stupid alarm is still going off at 5 am and there is no stopping it. I guess I will have to just resign myself to the fact that The Hubby will never let me sleep in again Monday thru Friday. So here I am up again with not too much to do. I have a personal trainer session this morning at 7:15 so it is sit and wait to leave. I got my workout clothes on, took my antibiotic, had a nice cup of coffee and read my paper. Time to brush my teeth but as I was leaning over the sink to spit I turned my head just a little off and OUCHY, there it goes. The pain in my neck - OUCH! Usually in the early spring and fall my neck seems to not handle the change of weather and so it is the usual crick in my neck. I can't turn my head to the left and lifting my arm to scratch my nose is a chore. Thankfully I can still type, ouch, maybe. I called Wade and cancelled as I know today would have been upper body workout and that is truly out. Yesterday I walked/jogged so at least I have some exercise. Tomorrow I am supposed to bowl but that may be out if the neck is still kinked up. I need to shower and wash my hair but that may be excruciatingly painful. I have to vote and drive to south Tulsa to the dealership to have my oil changed, fuel filter, etc. Ouch, turning my head to drive may be difficult. OUCH, the stupid pain in my neck.

Jill, thanks for your comments and for following my blog!! You're sweet, and your blog reads like a novel sometimes more than a journal. Maybe you should write a book! :o)

Actually it has crossed my mind many times but just can't seem to get it there. Thank you.

Sorry to hear about your neck pain- do some neck stretches while in the shower: bring your head forward and back, to the side and turn right and left- do all these to the point of feeling a gentle stretch, not to the point of pain. You can use ice during the day. Finally, get a good cervical pillow for sleeping at night. Having your head and neck aligned properly can make the difference with waking up pain free vs a stiff neck- Good luck- NJ
