I was bragging a few weeks ago about how I was only taking tylenol, no pain meds - woo hoo.
Well, after 2 months of wearing my cervical collar, I got it off last Tuesday. HOLY CRAP! :''(
My head feels like it weighs 900 lbs and my neck is going to snap. My neck and upper back muscles are SO spasmy (is that a word?
) I am back to taking Soma and Vicodin. How depressing.
I went to PT last Thursday and the pain got so bad after that I had to put my collar back on. I went back today and he said that was normal. Really - normal? YIKES! He said the neck is so unstable because it was used to not doing anything and now it's supporting this bobble head. Kind of like an "orange on a toothpick".
Ay yay yay...
