This morning I woke up with a serious pain somewhere in my upper right back, possibly in the area of the upper trapezius, though its hard to localize (seems to move around when I apply pressure to any given spot), so it may be something deep. The main sensation is a sharp pain when I tilt my head/neck forward a certain way, but it doesn't just have to be forward.
Any thoughts on what this might be? My parents thought it might be a pinched nerve, but after what I googled on pinched nerves (e.g. this
), that doesn't sound quite right.
I think it is from something I did in jiu-jitsu class yesterday afternoon (even though I didn't feel it until I woke up this morning), because the same thing happened a couple of weeks ago, the morning after an evening jiu-jitsu class. Both times much of what we were doing was throws (the beginning movements, anyway), rolls, ground holds and escapes, etc. So I'm fairly sure I could've tweaked something, but how could I not know it at the time?!
