Sorry to hear you are still having issues...It's been awhile since I've had them but I was pretty sore for a few weeks afterwards....
I would also get the steroid injections as well..that was always so weird to feel the lump of crunchy steroids under the skin in my neck! But they helped too...
I am glad that you have a call into the Dr. as it's always best to check with them when having any side effects..
Keep us posted and try to maybe put some ice on it tonight...not heat since it's probably inflammed so cold would be best...
Big hugs to you!!! Hope you can just relax..enjoy some good/funny tv tonight to take your mind off it until you speak to the Dr. tomorrow..
