Neck spasms suck

Back in February, I woke up with a sore neck...thought I slept wrong on it....this happened for a few days in a row.
My neck would get stuck in one place, like if I held my cell phone by my neck or read a story to my daughter while she sat in my lap. I would push my chin with my hand until it didn't hurt.
OK....so after six months of this..I developed a burning sensation in my shoulder...so I thought the strain was getting worse...I guess I'm not so swift.....my body telling me something for quite a while and I need it to yell at me before I do anything.
Went to the Doc.....He shot my neck with litacaine.....that did not help at all.
He told me to stretch the muscle, have my husband massage, take advil and heating pads.

THAT SO DOES NOT WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Any one have experience with accupuncture or know of a type of specialist I should see. Its hurting now as I type this and it hurts when I feed my daughter at the table. Lifting arm at weird angle up and over... or somewhat twisting causing throbbing...

owwwie sniff sniff....so sad

Life goes by....

So I know everyone is so enthralled with my blog that you've all been dying for the next installment.
My little niece Jennifer turned 19 yesterday.....I miss her lots.
Kelly is out of school for the rest of the summer. We'll be going to LBI on Wednesday for a few days.
Sabrina has some class next week, digging for dinosaurs or something like that.
I'm waiting for my final delivery of drapes from JC Penney so I can pick out a paint color for my living room.
and my husband is still asleep.

Friends of ours are on a cruise in the Caribbean this week. They flew into Puerto Rico and there's a category 4
hurricane in the area. We can't reach them by phone and I don't know exactly the name of their cruise line.
We're hoping their vacation won't be ruined.

What's up with everyone else?
