Tuesday morning, I took my mom to the doctor's because she is not well. Sinus infection, ear infection and dizziness. When I took her home then went to leave for Matthew and I to go home, all of a sudden, I got this HUGE pain going up the back-right side of my neck.
Thinking it would go away with time, I just came home and rested. All to find out that it was hurting even more. Took hot showers, no help. Took Motrin, no help.
And of course, I am part of the American body that does not have insurance as it is just to much money to pay out.
I took some more meds last night and went to sleep. Only to wake at 2:30am in execrating pain. No matter what I did, my neck was shooting pain through my head and right arm. Not being able to take it anymore, I starting crying. This woke Kevin up. At that time, I was ready to be taken to the ER even though I knew it would be a GIGANTIC bill.
Kevin was able to talk me out of it and now I am waiting for the doctor to get into the office this afternoon so I can see what can be done.
At some times, I feel like I pulled a muscle. At other times, it feels like I pinched a nerve. When the pain comes, my fingers go numb (tingling) and if I relax my shoulders, the pain goes right away. Maybe I pinched a nerve and pulled a muscle!
All I know is that I have a HUGE bump on the back of my neck and I cannot turn my head at all or it hurts!
