    Today has just been an AWESOME day.

    #2: On my way home, my neck was absolutely killing me. I tried massaging it while I was driving...just to relieve the tension. It didn't work. So, I pulled off the side of the road so I could take an Aleve. I get the pill out, shove it down my throat...OMG, WRONG TUBE. As I inhaled for a breath before swallowing, I apparently inhaled the Aleve also. I could feel it each time I took a breath and it was awful! I started coughing, gagging and just when I started seeing spots, I coughed it up as well as some of my digest food..in the car. NICE.

    #3: I got back to the apartment, my neck is still killing me. I decide to take a nice relaxing shower to try to get the muscles to loosen up. No good, now my shoulders are screaming at me. I use IcyHot all the time for my knees, wrists, etc. so thought nothing of using it for my neck and shoulder pain (after all, that is kind of what it was made for...). I get my boyfriend to help me put it down the middle part. 5 minutes later, I am SCREAMING. It burns so badly I can't see straight. I break out in tears it's so bad. APPARENTLY my little "massaging" in the car irritated the skin and by taking a nice hot shower, I opened my pores and irritated the skin even more.

    Now I'm up researching ways to make the burning stop!!!!


    Found the cure...I'm off to bed now!

    No, I can't see a doctor until I get my health insurance approved. Until then, just gotta suck it up and deal with it. [​IMG]

    And this morning, instead of the IcyHot stuff gone, APPARENTLY it actually burned me last night!

    We use Biofreeze. It works great! We got it at the Chiropractor's office, you should be able to find it where you are at or order it online. Hubby uses it on his neck.

    Hope you feel better. [​IMG]

    The photos aren't that great, but I thought I'd give a visual as to what I was feeling last night:
