Pulled Muscle and 14 weeks pregnant
Hello, I need help! I was having terrible nightmares last night and woke up at 4am in excruciating pain screaming and crying for my husband to help. The poor guy was startled awake. I either was so scared of my nightmare or I was sleeping in a weird position, because I totally pulled a muscle in the back of my neck on the left side. I had my husband rub it in long downward strokes to straighten the muscle, used ice, later used a heating pad, rubbed it some more- nothing is helping. I can't shower by myself, I can't get dressed or go to the bathroom by myself. Multiple times now, I have lifted my right arm and the pain on the back of my neck went all the way down my back, causing me to scream in pain. Then, I start hyperventilating which made the muscle spasms worse! It's almost 1pm here in California and i've had enough! Please, does anyone have any other advise for me? I don't want to call in to work tomorrow, because I have so much to do, so I want to try to resolve the worst part of this the best I can between now and when I wake up tomorrow. On top of this, I'm 14w2d pregnant, and I worry about stressing out the baby with my sudden jerk movements, tightening muscles and hyperventilating when I cry. Any suggestions will help...please!!!
