Okay, I went for a follow up appointment with my doctor today after my lovely Emergency Room visit last week.  Here is where things stand.  My doctor thinks that that the pain and problem is muscular/skeletal in origin.  She had me go for x-rays today and pending the results of that, I may have to go for an MRI as well.  She is sending me to a physical therapist to have them look at my neck and muscles to see what is going on and to see what they can do to help.  I go for that appointment on Thursday.  I don't know what the outcome will be, but I can always hope for therapeutic massage, right?  The doctor did have a real conversation with me about the fact that this is very probably caused by stress and things at work.  While we can come up with a way to fix things now, how are we going to prevent things from ending up back here in the future?  I've been thinking about it.  I know that there are some ergonomic things that I can buy that can help with the placement of my computer and so forth which can help some.  That only helps with the physical issues.  I have to think long and hard on how to handle the stress issue. 

She also gave me a stronger muscle relaxer to take for another week.  Hopefully, this one will help more.  It should for how much it cost, even with insurance.  This neck problem is going to send me to the poor house.  On the upside, I might actually get to have the medical write off on my taxes this year.  I've never hit that percentage before, but I swear that I am heading there quickly!
