The Ramblings of a Damaged Mind
I woke up with a crick in my neck. Not a big deal. But it kept getting worse and I couldn't look to the right, so I took some pain killers and forgot about it. Until it spread and it grew so that moving my right arm in certain ways caused some invisible assailant to stab a knife into my shoulder. So I put on a couple of slap on therma patches and took more Excedrin, but it has still been spasming a bit. Bad enough at times to make me cry out uncontrollably - and those who know me know that means it hurts a hell of a lot. I've had metal sticking out/through me and gone "Oh, damn, that sucks." I can feel the muscle contract all across my neck and shoulder, tight enough that I can feel it pulling on my skull. It hurts enough that I nearly dropped to my knees with one spasm.

This is unpleasant.

Go to the hospital.

If it doesn't stop I will. I crashed around 02:00 - I woke up at 04:00 and took more pills. Crashed again - woke up a bit before 05:00 and gave up. I'm getting ready for work. It still hurts, but stopped spasming. I can move my arm now, but I still can't turn my head all the way to the right.

I'll see how it goes.

Enough people already seem to have done the "Uh, dude - Doctor? Duh?" thing that one more probably won't make a difference.

But just in case: Go get that checked out, man! "I will work through the pain" machismo isn't good for you.

It's an issue with how the S2 setup creates the dropdowns if you have black as a background color. It doesn't seem to pick up the color for the text.

Bah, be a man! Walk it off! Seriously though, I'll add to the chorus of "Go see a doctor dude. Duh." THere's got to be, at the very least, a 24 hour clinic place near you just to have someone look at it and make sure you haven't accidentally fux0r3d something serious if you can't get to see your normal doc.
