Okay, I did Billy Blanks Bootcamp, Basic Training on Monday night. It's not the first time I've done it, but I really tried to push myself this time to go further. Well, on my way to work Tuesday morning, I moved my head a certain way and had the most excrutiating pain in my neck. It continued throughout the day...it was a horrible, burning pain that went from the back of the right side of my neck all the way down my right arm. It was so bad, that I was nauseous most of the day.
Well, after using ice, a heating pad, rubbing my neck and taking some naproxen, it finally subsided at about 4pm yesterday. Today, I'm just really sore.
So, I'm gathering I either pulled a muscle or pinched a nerve.
My question is this: I always do Tae Bo for my exercising, but I don't want to injure my neck anymore if it's not completely healed yet. So, should I hold off on the vigorous cardio for a few days and just walk? Or would the Tae Bo be okay to go back to?
I'm just not quite sure how to approach this situation.
