I tried to get up out of bed and I just could not move my head, that pain was unbearable. I tried to lift my head with my hands but it would not work. Somehow I did get out of bed by sliding out. My neck went into spasms. I sat up with a heating pad. Eventually, I felt ok to go back and try again to lay down. I was able to fall asleep and when I wake up, the pain is relaxed. My doctor tells me not to allow the chiropractor to manipulate my neck as there is hardly any space between the discs. But I think it needs to be aligned. I have signed up for seated yoga for the over 50 crowd. I am hoping this helps with the alignment of my spine. How do any of you deal with the neck pain and spasms?
