I had a horrible nights sleep. My husband took me to the hospital Saturday night for a stiff neck. It’s still very painful. All the neck muscles in the right side of my neck are the ones affected. They just locked up. I had almost constant muscle spasms. I was given flexural as a muscle relaxer and Lidocaine patches and methylprednisolone to bring down the swelling. They did not work right away so I suffered in horriable pain until the pills kicked in.
I had a difficult night last night for sleep. I am trying to have a positive attitude about all this but its been challenging.
As I sit here on this Monday morning, praying finally the meds will work. This is only the second day on them. It will take time for the swelling and spasms to dissipate.
I plan on making the best of the day and the pain and try to pull out something positive to distract me from the pain.
