Sometimes you just have to live with a sore neck.

On Saturday Jan 22nd, I woke up with a very sore neck.  I'm not sure how a person can sleep on their neck wrong, but I managed it.  It kept getting worse - neck, shoulder, arm, headaches etc, but finally this afternoon it seems to have let up.  There's still some soreness, but it is going away.

I guess it's part of getting older.  If the past is any prediction of the future, I'll be older tomorrow than I am today, and it'll just continue on that way.  Everything will work just a tad less effeciently than it did the day before. 

I managed to keep up my "rigorous" schedule - walking the dog and such.  But still it hurt.

I can't imagine someone having to live with pain like that every day of their lives, but I know lots of people do.  All in all, I've been fortunate.

Sorry that massager didn't help, but then maybe it did?

Hubby know all too well about neck pain. Ever since his accident, his neck has been hurting. Even after surgery, it still bothers him.

Glad it's getting better.

PA: Didn't hurt.

Heather: It's still sore, but not like it was. Many, many people live with pain all the time, I just got a temporary taste of it.
