I've been suffering for almost a week with severe neck pain that seems to be getting worse. Last night I rustled through the stash of "old pills" and found one lone muscle relaxer and so I'm feeling better this morning.
I don't know if cycling is causing this or making it worse or all the yard work that I've been doing - but this is a killer.
I also realized that it was my neck that was really bothering me the day I had such a bad ride around the lake - and the day of the group ride, my neck felt fine. I do know that I have some osteo-arthritis in my neck - I need to get this checked out.
On the last Wednesday ride, my neck was hurting and it's been hurting ever since. On Friday, I felt it kind of "pop" and I got some relief but yesterday at my desk, I started getting muscle spasms and by nightfall, had lost a lot of range of motion.
So this morning, I overslept and am still feeling groggy, but I'm the manager on board today, so I've got to pick up my heavy head and make for the office. Guess I need to add this to my list of stuff to be seen about.
Talk to me about chiropractors - I've always been sort of scared of that voo-doo that they do. Are you?
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Hold your head up high.
