A Pain in the Neck
....and head! OMG (am I too old to say this because it REALLY applies??), my head and neck have been killing me off and on for almost two weeks. After the last two sleepless nights I called the doctor FIRST thing this morning to get an appointment. This week I was taking 3 ibuprofen in the a.m. and 2 in the afternoon and still in pain!! Like major "crick" in the neck pain and ache. Now I am armed with muscle relaxers and an anti-inflammatory prescription to nip this agony. And why am I in this pain? Because I take one pilates class and two muscle classes a week (strength conditioning) and I seem to be using my neck when I shouldn't be! I lowered my weights yesterday (3 ibuprofen had kicked in so I was good to go) and will continue to do so until I'm back to normal. I love taking my classes and won't give them up, but man some days I feel every bit of my 39 years! Wish me restful sleep tonight! And due to the horrible sleep of late, suggest an under eye circle cream while you're at it.
