So yesterday morning (around 3:30am… ahhh) I wake up to my iPod singing. I remember thinking it was rather hard to move my neck to see to turn off my alarm. I figured my body just really wasn’t awake yet, stiffy. But as I started getting ready for the day I realized it hurt to move anywhere right with my neck. I go to work with two advil in me thinking I had just slept on my neck funny and it will go away in a few hours. Few hours later, my neck still hurts! So in the correct time apart I take four more pain meds to get my through the day. Nothing. My neck just didn’t get any better.
I get home and pull out my insurance card to call and maybe see a chiropractor (I went to one when I was younger… I remember only good things about them). Well, I had yet to set up a primary doctor with my insurance so I had to go through that process first, which was a blessing in disguise cause that is something I had been meaning to do for ages. I just don’t normally get sick enough to see a doctor so I never found a need to use my insurance, despite the year I have been paying for it. Thankfully, my insurance company had a stand-by nurse who talked to me about my pain which was nice. I got a couple of numbers for chiropractor in my plan (one happen to being the one my mom has visited and liked). I called this chiropractor and they are closed after noon on Tuesday. Lovely. So I spent the rest of the day with ice peas (and corn when later my peas started to leak, tee hee) and a heating pad taking turns on my neck.
Today, I was all ready to call the chiropractor again to see if they could fit me in this morning. My neck still being sore when I turn right (driving and wanting to turn right is a real treat, I have to move my whole body). My mom asked if I could wait another day, seeing if it just goes away on its own. Being if I don’t turn right I feel just fine, so I’m in constant pain. I’m pushing through another day hopping I really did just sleep on it really funny and it will go back to normal. Also, its only a co-pay but the chiropractor always want you to come back, so its not just a one time fixer-upper. Which is course what I want. I want my normal neck back!
