Boy, you get a year older and stuff starts falling apart. Okay, to be honest, stuff started falling apart years ago.
This time, though, it's my neck/upper back/right shoulder and arm. It started stiffening up and aching last Friday when I took a break from jury duty and went into the office. Can I really have gotten out of prime typing shape in just a few days?
Well, I DID work late on Friday, so I put in something like a ten-hour typing day, but there have been plenty of times when I didn't type for a few days and then DID--and typed overtime too--and lived to tell about it. So I don't know if it's THAT--the typing--or not.
Then, I thought it might be starting to feel a little better this afternoon, but I had to go spoil it all by going back into the office to type for another three hours.
Seriously, it may just be my imagination. No, not the pain; just the idea that it's caused by typing/work. Maybe it's just that the typing/work makes me notice the pain more. Anyway, I think I might not write a blog for a couple days if it keeps hurting.
I suspect muscle relaxants and jury duty wouldn't pair well. That's probably just as well, since I'd have to find time to get away from jury duty to see the doctor to get the muscle relaxants. In the meantime, I'll try heat, ice, and ibuprofen and see if that helps. I'll be back when I can.
