Siegels's Journal, 21 July 2018

😒 back on steroids for inflammation of cervical spine causing persistent cramps in upper back and neck. fortunately it's spinal nerve root not muscle tear. that means I can keep exercising while undergoing meds and PT. Two steps forward one step back = three steps...... so at least I'm getting cardio?

I am sorry you are in such pain. Have they suggested deep massage to help reduce the tension back there?? Stretching exercises to help loosen the muscles??
