I'm new here but I've been browsing for a few weeks.
I've been suffering from neck and shoulder pain for the last year. I am a 24 y.o male, and I used to exercise 3x a week until I lifted weights with bad technique over my head. I woke up with a frozen neck, and have received treatments from physiotherapists and chiropractors. I finally had an MRI scan last month which found a slipped disc in my neck, but my pain has spread to my legs and I get tingling sensations randomly which make me feel very weak. I am about to undergo a second MRI of my whole back to try and understand the pain in the legs. My legs are just tender and sore all the time.
I am struggling with the time off from work. I am lying in bed all day, with the occasional walk outside or around the house. It has been a month of this, and I am starting to feel like my home is a prison. I can't concentrate on TV or films. I pass the time on social media, playing card games, or listening to music. I just don't know how to spend the time. My concentration is so poor.
What have you all done in similar situations?
