I had a cervical spine epidural yesterday and my neck is KILLING me today. As long as I don't move my head I am fine but if I try to look anywhere but straight it feels like there are knives where they injected me.
I have tried ice and my pain meds but thats just not cutting it so I am reaching out to all the wonderful people here to see if anyone has some tricks they have used/use to make the next few days tolerable. I really don't want to be out of commission on my birthday (friday)
Thanks everyone and big ((((hugs)))) to all of you. I don't always get time to post but I do read all your threads and my heart goes out to you every day.
Your broken friend,

In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children. The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted. The result is unruly children and childish adults. ~Thomas Szasz
