10/15/10 Stiff and Tight

D*mn...PCP appointment on Monday (soonest they can get me in). I was just sitting early evening yesterday and my neck started to feel stiff. It ramped up quickly until I couldn't turn my head by the time DH got home...nerves zinging in the upper left back and down the arm. I took some OTC pain reliever, put on the heating pad, and shared some wine with Sandy. I was able to sleep until a little before 3am...up until 7am, then I took a short nap...ughh.

DH thinks this is the result of my ladder fall as I can't trace the neck back to anything else, not even sleeping funny as I didn't wake up with it (and it's on the left side, which is the shoulder I fell on). Geez, I thought I was out of the woods with a few bruises and skinned appendages...four days later? Could it really take this much time for an injury to start? Funny thing was, I was planning to blog about how quickly I recovered from that fall and how that never would have happened 100 pounds ago...jinx. I do have that Osteoarthritis in my neck that was affecting my same shoulder (went to Physical Therapy 1.5 years ago for it). I wish the Doc could have gotten me in today...I may be better by Monday (fingers crossed)...but I may be rifling through the old prescriptions tonight *sigh*. OK, enough whinefest...No worries, it could have been so much worse!

Hope you feel better soon! 4 days seems a bit much for pain from a fall, but who knows? It does seem the likely explanation.

Your paragraph about how the fill helps you detox and get rid of the cravings and food obsession is SO RIGHT ON! I am really fighting head hunger right now and have given into it more than a few times. I don't need a fill, but maybe I should do a couple of days of liquids.

I love the post-fill detox...I've dropped 6.6 pounds this week because of my fill mid-week! Yay bandsters! We need to relish these moments when we're hating the stall/plateau!
