>The neck and tale of it!!

>I can be a pain in the neck for people at times.. hehehaha πŸ˜€ but never thought it will literally rebound on me… I’ve been suffering from some problem in my neck for a couple of months now…

Let me start at the beginning… It happened nearly two months back. There was a sudden catch in my neck on a Sunday evening.. I know there can be a muscle pull or catch in the neck when you turn suddenly or you’ve slept in the wrong posture all night etc. But this was out of the blue.. I wasn’t even doing anything.. There was a horrible pain in the neck and lower portion of my head. I could not move my head even by an inch. My parents weren’t at home too. 😦 The pain was so horrible that I felt if I move my head, I’m gonna die… I was so sure that it was gonna be my last day.. I was even thinking what are the things I should do right that moment, if I’m gonna die. The first thing that came to my mind is that my parents are out and I need to unbolt the door so that they can open it from outside when they are back.. lol… πŸ˜€ I called my parents and they panicked… I said I’ll try and go lie down and will call them again if it subsides… The pain started subsiding after about fifteen mins… My parents returned and it was around 8 in the night. Since it was late and it was a Sunday all clinics were closed.

My neck was fine by morning, except for a tingling pain. So I did this brave thing of going to office. Guess what… a similar catch in the neck repeats sometime in the noon. My friends took me to the clinic in the campus and the doctor asked me to move my head and asked a few questions. She then prescribes me a pain killer and tells me to go to an orthopedist if the pain doesn’t subside, coz it could be Spondylosis…

A series of visit to the orthopedist followed, with the formal procedures of x-rays and tablets. The diagnosis of Orthopedist1 was that the pain is because I have a habit of lying down and reading. Since the pain kept recurring when I was done with the tablets, my sis advised me (read as threatened me :)) to see another orthopedist. This person is pretty famous… The diagnosis of Orthopedist2 was that the pain mainly because of wrong posture. I was advised to take physiotherapy for a week, which I did.. The physiotherapy sessions can be a post by itself :D…

On the last day of the physiotherapy session guess what happens.. there’s a catch in the neck just like day 1 (hmmph!! all my money down the drain)… Now on my mom’s advice I’m taking a homeopathic treatment from a doctor to whom she’s a loyalist… πŸ™‚ I guess my parents are also happy coz his diagnosis matched my parents opinion… that its because of weakness and that I have to eat properly.. πŸ˜‰ All said and done.. Now I have to take these tablets for 4 weeks… Let me wait and watch…

I liked the way this doctor advised me.. He said a lot of things, but one amongst that was… β€œLove yourself, the way you are”. I don’t know why he told me that. Probably he could read it on my face that I don’t really love myself…. πŸ™‚ He then went on to add that he works for 9 to 10 hours everyday but he loves himself and he shows his love to himself by eating good food and enjoying it… Coming from a stranger this really touched me.. I felt nice after talking to him. πŸ™‚ As for the pain in the neck, I think all the doctors were right in some way and I can only hope that it gets cured…

So… people… Love yourself, the way you are!!! πŸ™‚
