Snap-Crackle-Pop (NOT) Rice Crispies!

Well, I finally broke down and went and saw a chiropractor.

For over a week now, just sitting here working all day has caused the musles in the back of my neck to knot up tight/stiff, along with the occasional burning sensation. It was driving me nuts. It was giving me the worst headaches. With the family sinus problems, I'm no stranger to sinus headaches, and these aren't sinus headaches. Almost migraine like. Quite literally a pain in the neck/head.

Usually, when I have a bad headache of any sort, and the meds just aren't helping much, I always get relief from a good nights sleep.

Not anymore.

In fact, seemingly by the luck of the draw, I could wake up with a sore neck, and a fresh headache starting to soak itself in. Heather suggested I either go to the doctor, or "Doctor Dave" (the local chiropractor that everyone swears by.) Well, Doctor Dave wouldn't take a new patient, so I went to this Doc. Peterson, Chiro-back-crack-ologist and Nutritionalist.

Well, he snap-crackle-popped me, and TADA! I feel a bit better! There's inflamation in the joints (that was there BEFORE the rice-crispy-action,) that will take some time, and ice, to settle down, but for now, I'm feeling a ton better! WOOO!
