Hazel, I also carry all of my tension in my neck and shoulder muscles. Some days it hurts so bad that it actually makes my face tingly, and my left arm hurt.
I contribute this to the fact that I do have Fibromyalgia too, and that's one of the main pressure points. So for me, all the stress that i'm experiencing goes directly to my neck and shoulders, and it makes the fibro pain 10 times worse.
When this happens I pop 3-4 Ibuprofen (Advil) and go on with my day the best I can. I know the bottle says 2, but my doc says the therapeutic dosage is between 600-800 mgs, so instead of getting a prescript
ion for them, and paying too much for 30 pills, I just buy a bottle of 500 ibuprofen and take them that way.
Advil is an anti inflamatory, so it really does help. I'd suggest you take 2 though, if you try it. I take that much for a reason, and at the recommendation of my doc for my condition.
Edit: Fox, the dashes in your signature line are stretching the screen thus the edits of your signature. If you go back into your profile and take out the dashes your signature will be fine.
