My name is Matthew Evan Hodgson-Fopp and I am a neck pain sufferer (and some say I drink too much as well -Coke Zero that is-). I guess it’s been a recurring theme over the past 10 years or so (both sore necks and alcoholic beverages). I’ll just wake up in the morning and not be able to move. The slightest movement will send shooting pains down my neck, spine and every limb I have. It’s f*#king painful.
The most recent occurrence happened about 4 weeks ago while making cookies with the twins. Cookies of all things! The moral of the story here is to not make cookies.
A quick visit to the doctors, a little poking and it improved in a few days. It was never 100% but it did improve.
Fast forward another two weeks and it was house cleaning day. I was running around like a mad man (which I kind of am anyway); moving furniture, dusting, hovering etc and something happened. I didn’t know this at the time though. I woke up Sunday morning and I couldn’t move. This continued for another couple of days which is when I decided it was time for the doctor. He agreed it was muscular and gave me a pile of pain killers.
3 or 4 days later and nothing was improving. I was still in so much pain that I went back to the doctors. He increased the pain meds and sent me to the physio. By this point the pain was moving down my arm.
So I went to the physio and he thinks it’s not muscular. Lol is all I can say. So back to the doctors it is.
Neck pain sucks although it is slightly less painful than it was.
Not really sure why I wrote this as no one will care but I did :) That’s ok though. Lol.
