Bad week

I've been having a really bad week. On Monday, I woke up at 4am with a blazing headache on the whole left side of my head. A hot shower, 4 motrin and an ice pack later, I was on the couch and just couldn't make myself get up to go to work. Luckily, I was able to work from home for half a day so it wasn't a whole lost day.

Yesterday, I was at work, sitting at my computer when all of a sudden, I had a blinding pain in my left shoulder, near my neck. I wasn't doing anything, not even typing so I have no idea what happened. One minute, I was fine and the next, I was in a lot of pain. I borrowed a microwave heat pack from one of the other girls at work and toughed it out all day, but I was totally miserable. It was hard driving home, since I couldn't turn my neck to the left. I had to turn my whole body if I needed to change lanes. It got really bad when I got home because I was moving more than I had all day. I scared my daughter at one point because I was just sobbing from the pain. My hubby rubbed my neck and shoulder off and on most of the night and I took a couple of really hot baths as well.

This morning I decided that my health was more important than going to work so I stayed home again today. I've got one of those sticky heat packs on my shoulder and a full tube of Bengay. Woo boy, I'm ready to par-tay!

I still have no idea what I did but I'm guessing it's all related since both the headache and the pulled muscle were on the left side. I'm not that old, why do I feel like I'm falling apart!?!

I'm feeling much better today, just a twinge now. If it lasts, I'll probably make an appointment and go see my doctor. I'm thinking that I must have done something on Sunday, or slept wrong Sunday night and this is all the result of whatever it is that I did.
