Pinched nerve, ouch....blah, blah, blah.

I was just getting ready to brag that I haven't had back or neck problems for a couple years now -- since I changed the position I sleep and --for neck problems -- not drinking before bed.

Then, yesterday, I was casually putting books away at my store, and I felt the nerve in my back pinch.

Same nerve as always.

The first time it happened, about 25 years ago, I was laid low. I couldn't move off the couch.

Each time I get it now, it's a little less dire. I can pretty much function now. I take an Aleve immediately, and then just try not to move much -- nothing I can do but wait it out.

I'm pretty sure this is the most uninteresting blog I've ever written....

You and I are in total sync with the pinched nerve thing +++ the history! I'm waiting it out too.

How did drinking before bed screw up your neck?

If I'm very tired and or soused I can sleep with a crook in my neck. I have a much bigger pillow now, too.
