[quote=“Muzha Man”][quote=“Mordeth”]On Saturday morning I truned my head to look at something and got a muscle spasm. It’s happend before so I didn’t think much of it.
It’s now Wednesday and although it was getting better each day…today it’s worse. I’m guessing it’s from my 30 min scooter ride home from work last night (On Monday and Tuesday I took my car…).
It’s pretty bad today…people are telling me to go to a doctor…but I’m pretty sure there aren’t any drugs for muscle spams…or pinched nerves…or whatever this is.
So just put some heat on it? Do I lie down…it seems worse in the mornings. Anything else I’m missing?[/quote]
If it’s still bad in a few days, I’d go see Doctor Mark the American chiropractor as there are specific exercises and stretches that will help. If you’ve really pinched a nerve or torn a tendon it won’t heal propery on its own.
If there is any inflammation don’t use heat. Try cold and aspirin. One thing is not to stretch it out at first. In fact you should keep you head in the direction of the pinch (and not stretch in the opposite direction). This helps to relieve pressure on the muscles and tendons.[/quote]
There is no swelling. I can push on any part of my neck without any (additional) pain from the pressure. But at present I am unable to look at my keyboard (typing skills…the best skill I ever learned at school). And the pain is enough to make me breathe very rapidly at present.
And pillow is the same…although I have a new sleeping partner which might alter my sleeping position.
