My 2010 New Year Celebration At Home

My 2010 New Year Celebration At HomeAfter Christmas, I went back to the gym to get in shape. As if I gained some pounds over the holidays. Anyway days after, it felt like my neck was broken. I was in the office the last week of 2009 in pain, literally. I was still rushing with some deadlines so I can't take a sick leave to rest.

On the eve of New Year, my friends have invited me to come over to their place. They planned to cook spaghetti and to order some pizza. Aside from that my landlord have invited me to their friend's house to celebrate New Year. I said No since I wasn't feeling well. Biogesic wasn't able to help me with the pain.  No fireworks for me this year.  Sigh...

When I got home after work, I looked for medicines in my cabinet. During Ondoy, I have donated all of my medicines and what is left is my stomach ache medicine. I was looking for a pain reliever and I saw in one of the medicines a pack of Diazepam, a so-called pain reliever. I was curious what it is and was shocked to know that it is actually a Valium. What the heck is the doctor giving me Valium for stomach ache? Thank God, I didn't take that medicine.  Thanks to Wikipedia.

Since I don't have any other pain relievers, I sent a message to my landlord asking if she has Mefenamic Acid. She just told me to search in the medicine container. I took one that instant but there were no difference. That night, I have resorted to do some hot compress on my neck. Thirty minutes before 2010, I went to bed hoping that 2010 won't be a sick year for me.

So far, my neck is better now but still a bit painful.  Wow, aside from my usual tummy aches, my back and shoulder pain, there's a new addition, neck pain.  Waah!

Actually it's more safe to use the topical medicines than the medicines being swallowed. In oral medication, we don't know what will be its complication in our body. It might cure the pain but it may also put to harm some parts of our body.

On your case, I suggest that you do some stretching exercises after your workout session to release the muscle tensions. Hot compress or liniment oils/pads can also help to soothe the pain. However, consulting a doctor would be best because they are more knowledgeable on that matter. We cannot easily assess the severity or extent of the injury you've got. You might be needing an x-ray or he might prescribe a supplement or a record tracker for you to watch your diet. Remember all of us have been feasting in the past holidays and we tend or intentionally forget our diets. :D

Happy eating and burning the fats. P
