Pain Captain! PAIIIINNNNN!!!!

I'm not sure WHAT it is that I have done to my neck but it has been getting more and more stiff throughout the day. I keep trying to do stretches which help for a little bit...but then LOCK.

It's so I can't even bend over anymore.

Needless to say I took things very gingerly in kickboxing tonight. It was the last night with the substitute instructor (he ROCKS) and he did some stretches and some aligning techniques which felt GREAT...but didn't get my neck to pop. He was really surprised at how limited my movement was.

"Your neck is really, really tender and I do NOT want to push it." he told me.

I did take some aleve tonight and bribed my roommate with some warmed up halibut to give it a good rubdown. It helped considerably but I am still sore.

Hopefully I will wake up tomorrow with maybe a small twinge that goes away during the day.

Because.

OW.

Maybe you should have put the warm halibut on your neck. Somehow that's what I envisioned at first quick read.

Have you ever seen a chiropractor? Some people say they're all bunk, but they sure have helped me. You do have to find the right one, however. Some of them really are full of crap.

Aspirin, warm compresses, and take your multivitamin. Non-exertion muscle cramps occur because you're low on calcium, potassium, or water, so obviously weight up on those if you're not already taking them. (If you are, obviously, don't load up more; that won't help).

I had this happen to me last year, and it happened on and off for a couple of months. I think the initial spasm was exercise-related, but what happened then was the injury site kept re-asserting. I wish I knew what had triggered the re-injury.
