Last Thursday after a FULL day of knitting, i woke up in agony and some fear. I couldn't move my neck or my right shoulder without some amount of screaming. It took a very long time to manage to get out of bed after thinking i was paralysed.
It turns out i had twisted the muscle from my neck to my right shoulder from stress and repetitive straining or something. which makes sense because being a graphic illustrator who uses a mouse all day, and when im not doing that, im knitting.
Almost a week later and some physio , its still not fixed, im eating pain killers like they are lollies.
I cant sit down, lay down, sneeze, cough, or laugh without a mega amount of pain.
So i guess this is a warning to all the hard core knitters who dont do regular stretches and what not between a few rows etc. DO stretch! DO have rests!
My dogs been trying to look after me by licking my fingers. not helping!
I'm so bored. i cant do anything [especially knitting] right now apart from have a bit of a cry.
