So if you read my Pain in the Neck post last week I’m sure it’s no surprise that my workouts were completely non-existant.
I pretty much spent Tuesday through Saturday totally out of commission due to some crazy muscle spasms in my neck, shoulders and upper back. After 3 days of my activity being limited to lying on my moms floor and moving as little as possible, I finally got a prescription for a stronger muscle relaxer and pain killer and within hours I could feel the spasms begin to loosen slightly.
I spent most of Saturday sort of out of it from all the medication, but by Sunday I moved to only taking the pills at night before bed so I could drive and didn’t have to deal with the side effects.
Right now I’d say I have about 80-85% of the range of motion back in my neck and (thankfully!) the constant pain is gone, it really only hurts when I move it too much in one direction, so hopefully I’ll be back at 100% soon!
I obviously don’t have any workout pictures from last week, but I thought some of you might enjoy a few pictures I took while I was laying on my moms floor (sounds exciting right?!?).
If you’ve ever had a pet you’ve probably noticed that they can definitely sense when something is wrong, when you’re sick, hurt or upset…well Madison was the most amazing little nurse for me last week when I wasn’t feel great – she literally didn’t leave my side!
