I went home the other day after a good bicep/shoulder day and was watching some TV. My neck was out of position so I popped it back into place. I got up a few minutes later and had a nagging sharp pain extending from the middle of my neck to the base. Initially I tried to stretch it out, but this hurt immensely.
Went to bed, and the next day it was just as bad, maybe a little better. Spent the day resting and put heat on it, along with a little massage. Day after that (today) it has improved, but it is still bugging me. The pain is more concentrated in the base of my neck and hurts when I turn my head or strongly look straight upward or downward. I’ve guessed that I might have slightly torn my levator scapulae on the left side, but that’s just it: a guess.
If anyone has any insight or advice into this, feel free to comment. Thanks.
