Ok so short back story, this all started when i was doing weighted chin ups, doing a heavy triple, grinding out last rep, and i felt something in my neck/upper/middle trap twinge, pretty painfully, 7/10 on a pain scale. It continued to bug me for 2 weeks, i got massages, took time off from lifting and martial arts, used ice, NSAIDs, and stretched lightly. ever since then i have been having a chronic and re occuring neck crick or strain, but it seems like almost nothing sparks it.
It never hurts when i lift, even heavy deadlifts, weighted chins or power cleans don’t bother it, but it will suddenly show up in the morning or even when relaxing, the other day i was taking a shit ( laugh it up lol) and i felt a twinge in my neck, within 5 minutes i couldn’t turn my damn head. same thing after a week of not being able to turn my head well, i returned to training, trained for 3 weeks and lo and behold my neck went nuts again while i was at work.
i just want to know if anyone else has had this issue, what they did, what they suggest for me, and possible diagnoses or medical options. It is really disturbing my training, especially martial arts.
