A week ago saturday (10 days ago) I got a stiff neck in the middle of the day. 20 years ago I was in a car accident and there was some whiplash involved, so every now and then it comes back to haunt me. So a stiff neck is nothing new to me--i get it once or twice a year.
I have never had it last this long or be quite so severe. Thursday I had a massage and hoped it would help. Initially it seemed like it did, but it didn't last. Sunday night was the first night in about 4 nights that I got any sleep. Yesterday I was off work and felt pretty good. Then about 7pm last night it came back--bad. I didn't sleep well again last night and didn't go to work today. I'm going to the doctor at 11:20 to get to the bottom of it. I've used muscle relaxers, gobs of ibuprofen, heating pad, ice pack, and everything I can think of and nothing is helping.
Wish me luck!
