Well, apart from the fact that it's my neck and that it should have a curve in it (like this - see, that's what a lordotic curve in a normal cervical spine looks like) and blatantly doesn't ....
... for which I totally blame the guy who drove through the back of our Fiat Uno on a German motorway 23 years ago writing off the car, destroying quite a few bottles of extremely delicious wine and wrecking my neck to boot.
Not that I hold grudges for very long, you understand!
Anyway ...back to the picture. There are some bulging discs near the base of my very straight (or "defective" if you use the caring, sensitive terminology of the guy at the radiology lab) neck and somehow they're irritating some nerve roots on the right side which apparently explains the current uselessness of and pain in my right shoulder, arm and (sometimes) ear for the last 4 weeks or so and a complete lack of crafting.
In fact a complete lack of anything .. no work, no driving, very little typing (except left-handed), no housework (OK - small Yay! there), no gardening, NO FUN!
And did I mention that it hurts?
So, not being good really isn't much of a temptation. It's likely to continue for a while yet. The consultant has prescribed loads of physio, drugs and rest ...
... a veritable snooze fest!
