Injury Again...Ouch!

I woke up this morning feeling really stiff on the upper right side of my back. As I tried to move, the pain hit me. I must've unknowingly pulled a back muscle at the gym last night because I didn't feel any pain during the session or when I went to sleep. The stiffness and dull but sharp pain prevents me from moving my head or my right arm. It was so bad that I had to take MC and see the doctor, who gave me painkillers and some muscle relaxant. I've pulled a muscle or had a sprain before, but never this severely. I couldn't even brush my teeth or wash my hair without wincing from the pain, which was mostly from the upper right side of my back. Heck, it was a struggle to even put on a shirt after I showered, as I couldn't lift my right arm above my shoulder level.

Thankfully, the medication worked. Though it's still kinda stiff, at least the pain doesn't bite as hard anymore. This has been the second gym-related injury this month. I really have to watch it. I hate falling sick or getting injured because I can't stand being helpless or incapacitated.
