Pain in the Neck

Yesterday it started with stiffness in the neck, and coalesced into a headache around 5 pm. I took the cocktail* around 6 and ate dinner, but it was only a modest improvement, maybe from a 6 down to a 4. I did manage to fall asleep, but I woke up at 4:45 with horrible, horrible pain -- 9/10. I was afraid to move for a few minutes. I was sweating and faintly sick from the pain. I staggered downstairs -- my balance was seriously impaired -- and took another round of the cocktail* and staggered into the guest room. Trying to get back up the stairs seemed too hard. I was kind of scared lying there -- it was SO bad that I was wondering if there was something really wrong with me, if I was going to have a stroke or something. But eventually I fell asleep and stayed dead to the world for another five hours. I woke up feeling groggy, but the headache is gone. Of course, I missed yet another morning of work, but that's the way it goes.
