Three weekends ago I woke up with a slight crick in my neck/pain in my neck and shoulder. The next day the pain was so bad that I couldn't lift my arms above my head to get dressed and I was in extreme pain getting in and out of bed (i.e. sitting up or turning on my side to sit up).
Since then, while it did improve of course, I still have pain. To date I've gone for a massage and gone to the *chiropractor. I've been swimming in the pool daily. But it is still not gone! Every evening before bed is the worst, and I take two ibuprofen in order to sleep.
Am coming to my wit's end about it. But I am also trying to stay hopeful and think positive. Maybe it just needs time. I've read online that neck/shoulder pain should not last more than month (it is a real problem if it does!), so fingers crossed!!
