I work 14 to 16 hours a day on the computer. Had surgery for replacement disk C7/T1 Dec 2016— went well.
Because I was in pain so long looking for a surgeon I developed a habit of working with a laptop in bed. I have a motored controlled bed that allows me to sit up with pillows for support. Two weeks ago I had a spill on my MacBook Pro so I purchased an iMac (desk top). Two weeks sitting up with out neck support has been hell. I'm right back in horrible pain (no arm problems).
The computer is huge 27" so I can be at eye level easily but I do look down at the keyboard.
I have to wear my soft collar to function. I refuse to take pain meds because it took me 6 month to wean off them last time. I ordered a new water pillow (because reviews raved about for neck problems).
Wondering will I have to work in bed forever or just build up my neck muscles? Anyone have any problems like this? Any suggestions? I'm login to ask for physical therapy to build my neck muscles.
