pain in the neck

left side: normal, right side: me

Along with the crazy anxiety I’ve been having, I’ve had a lot of pain in my neck for the last month and finally had it checked on Monday. The x-rays show a pretty crooked neck which has been causing all the pain.

They think it is a torn ligament in my neck, from long ago, that is the cause of the curvature. It’s just one of those things that I’ve been dealing with for so long, that I didn’t realize it was a problem until my neck started screaming at me.

So now I am getting therapy, which involves exercises, massage and stretching.  I’ve had 2 sessions so far (at least 10 more to go) and am already feeling a bit better. I am so thankful to be getting some relief.

    Oh, Regina, I’m glad you’re getting some relief and I hope you continue to feel better and better. It has been such a crazy summer, so short. I’m going to email you soon so we can “chat.” Take good care of yourself, let your guys pamper you a bit!

    Oh, I so understand what you are going thru.
    I too have had a huge “crookedness” on my neck for so long that I never thought it was something wrong, I was just used dealing with it.
    I thought “I am tired”, “Its the end of the day” and all that.
    Wishing you all the best on your healing process.

  6. Wow! Ouch! (((Hug))) So glad you found help — happy healing, dear Regina!

  7. Sending loving and healing thoughts to you. I am so blessed and grateful for your friendship. Feel better.

  8. oh, my goodness!!! i hope you’re feeling a bit better after some massage 🙂
    i started taking Pilates last year & have been trying to correct my posture ever since.
    had to take the summer off, & i feel like i’m starting almost at the beginning.
    i highly recommend it – but see if your insurance will pay for some private classes. mat classes are usually cheaper, but with a neck injury, you’d want more personal attention!!
