This morning I woke up early, about 5:30 am. It's only 30 minutes earlier than when my alarm goes off, so I decided to just go ahead and get up, maybe enjoy a nice cold bath (which is actually lovely first thing in the morning). I was laying on my left side, and when I began to lift myself up I felt a sudden twang in my neck, which shot pain all through my left shoulder area. It felt like a tendon got yanked, or something slipped out of place, and it's been pinching me pretty badly for a few hours now. Taking a bath was so difficult, 'cause it's so hard to hold the weight of my head up by itself, and I can't turn very far to either side. I lay in bed for a few minutes just whimpering. Dammit. This has happened before, and it will go away over the next few days, but still it feels kinda pathetic. I wanted to go to yoga tonight, and go buy a bike and then ride it back to my house, but without being able to turn my head, I don't think either of those things are a good idea.

I took ibuprofen and rubbed arnica gel on my neck, but I'm still in a lot of pain.
