At 6:15 this morning, I flopped over in bed, turned my head to the right, set it down on the pillow…and felt a wave of burning stretch from my right shoulder to my right ear. What the heck? I wondered at first if I was having a stroke or something, but within fifteen minutes it had turned into the typical soreness of "slept funny on my neck"—only about ten times worse.
Among other things, I'm annoyed because my gym has finally added some good evening yoga classes, and I really wanted to go one tonight. But since the list of things that hurts includes "turning my head 5 degrees to the right," "leaning forward," "the impact of walking down stairs," and "opening my mouth," I think I'd better play it safe. Or maybe check myself into a hospital.
My husband kindly pointed out that, ironically, if I'd just gone to the 5:15 a.m. yoga like I used to, this never would have happened. Har har.
