Tension In The Neck
That feeling when you can’t turn your head to one side anymore. It seems I have a tension in the neck. I had this a few times in my life, I guess we all had this at least once in our life? I still can remember the last time I had that, it was quite annoying. Now I have it again and it happened when I looked behind me, it seems I twisted a muscle or nerve while doing this. You know when you get old, ok now I am kidding because once I had a tension in the neck after a soccer match as a teenager as well, it can just happen.
It’s not that I will die because of it, but it is extremely annoying and even writing this post is somehow a pain too. I took a midday nap today and when I woke up it was worse, of course, because I probably turned to the side where my neck muscles are now tense while sleeping. I tried to watch TV but even that is quite difficult now. It’s quite a while ago when I had this the last time, but my experience is that it will go away after three or four days.
Too bad that I don’t have a hot-water bag at home, I know this would help, maybe I should fill a bottle with warm water, I could use that for some minutes, it’s just not that comfy like a bag. Anyway, I don’t cry, tension in the neck is more annoying than painful, unless I look to the left now. I will wait this out on the weekend, otherwise I might need a massage next week.
