Brushing my teeth the other morning I heard a slight pop/snap/woosh sound in the right side of my neck. As soon as I tried to move my neck I had pain shot down my right shoulder, arm and into my hand. My right and got all hot and numb and that was all she wrote.

I can't look to the right, or left, or up now with out unbearable pain. I spent most of the day at work all loopy from the pain, my boss and co-workers kept asking me if I felt alright and of course I said I was fine. My finally had to call and lie to ket me to come home saying something happened to my daughter. A few hours after that we went to the ER where they hooked me up.

Here it is 24 hours since then and I'm feeling like absolute crap again. I know my NS will say to get surgery ASAP, I can't and won't. I need more opinions first.

I didn't know brushing my teeth could be so dangerous.
