Pain and feeling twisted are back. The dizziness is worse than the pain.

Friday, July 13, 2007


I came back from a two month trip abroad where I was alternating between painful and dizzy. Fortunately I didn't get headaches.

Now I'm back, and my neck feels stretchy. Not painful, good thing.

severe shoulder pain

I thought my neck/shoulder was getting better. Neck traction was making it feel really relaxed. My last treatment was last Saturday. And then yesterday, Tuesday - my shoulder started to hurt terribly. I could barely use it. Is this the side effect of the treatment?

I took Meloxicam/Mobic and it helped just a little.

A month ago, I was abroad for two weeks and there were no problems.

cold hurting

For the past two weeks I've had a bad cold with fever and chills. I don't know if that - or my neck/shoulder - was causing my headache. They were definitely complementing each other. Nasty.

two plane trips and the in between

I just got back from a month abroad. The 12 hour plane ride - each way - did "wonders" for my neck/back. While I was away, I was suffering from the pain and had headaches once a week. Not a good way to spend time away from home.

Now that I'm back, I got my treatment restarted.

I also decided (as I always always do) that I need to start working out, lose weight etc. and one obstacle is the pain. I need to get it under control. (But then again, there's time, and other factors.)

headaches again

After a 12-hour flight, and moving back 5 timezones, I'm not sure if my headache is due to neck/back pressure again, or lack/excessive sleep or adjustment.

laptop backpacking

Lots of people carry laptops on their backs now. I just joined that community. I have to watch my lower back pain, though.

My neck is fine, it's not affected by the load.
