    Good morning for me....HEAT is what I would use. Whether a thermacare Patch or got my hands on the heating pad. I also have (lucky me) a blanket warmer that I can wrap up in.

    I know exactly what you were feeling. I hate it when it happens. I also have had to stop in my tracks, that the muscles everywhere else shut down....

    Sit heat on and get the head and neck leaning on something (the car was a great idea). Other then that, you did everythign I would have.....sorry you got in trouble. Hoep you are better as I write this note.

    I am going to check into the thermacare patches. I'm also going to start bringing my tube sock full of rice to work.

    When I'm at home I take a shower as hot as I can. I had to shower at least 3 times when I met to bed. Once before bed, then a couple of hours later and then finally a 3rd time. When then slept soundly, just not long enough due to phone calls.


    I don't know about the heating pad a work, but that's a thought.

    big thanks
