Yep. The doctor said I had whiplash from extended computer use, which I find odd. I imagine car accidents and athletic endeavors as culprits for whiplash. Not office work. Perhaps I read a really shocking email and got whiplash from my reaction. I dunno.
“This before and after x-ray shows the side view of a patient’s neck. The blue line shows correct alignment and the red line shows the patients alignment. It is easy to see that the alignment on the left is severely abnormal and the alignment on the right is almost perfect.”

This isn’t my neck but it looks like my x-ray. I wish I would have taken a photo for this here blog but at the time when I was in the doctor’s office I was cranky and in pain. So my neck is currently like the x-ray on the left. Straight. The neck is naturally like the x-ray on the right. Curved.
Hopefully my pain killers and especially my muscle relaxers will kick in and I’ll be “right” again.
In the meantime, I’m couch bound.
