I have no idea what's wrong with me..but it hurts.
Well, I went to the gym on march 8. That's over a week and a half ago. I hurt something in my lower neck just below shoulder level. I think it was those military presses (about 50lbs.). I am 45 and slender build and in otherwise good shape (i think..).
I cant bend my head back. I can't even get back to where my head is neutral. It is a little forward and that causes my muscles all in the back of my neck and back to be always strained and burning. If I bend my head back and try to straighten up, I get SEVERE pointed pains on the left side of my back bone area at the lower neck.
Since this has happened, I have been popping 600-800mg advils to manage the pain. Even with these, sometimes I have to stop and rest. WHat i do is bend over and let my head and arms hang so I get some traction on my bones and let my muscles rest a little.
I have also noticed lately a lot of the nerve misfirings (muscle twitches) occuring on my left pectoral, under my arms, and out the clavical area on my back.
This one I'm not sure of: When I feel the little bumps on the vertabre on the back of my neck, it seems like the one near the pain is not quite in line with the others...?? It's shifted. I need someone to look at that more carefully since I can't really see the back of my neck.
I've had problems building up in this area for a number of years and am worried that my neck area is getting worse. Even normally, i don't think I can bend my head back to where regular people can anymore.
HELP...I DONT WANT TO BE THE HUNCH BACK GUY!!!
