    You don't have a hospital in your area?If my doctor is booked solid,and I was in severe pain,I'd be at the emergency ward.That's me though,I'm weird like that.

    Don't be stupid .... go and see a sport's doctor before you do yourself permanent damage and are unable to train EVER again!!!

    You really need to go to an ER if you can't get in to a doc. If you think you tore the muscle that is pretty serious shit. If it gets worse when you lift how do you think it will ever get better. They will tell you in the ER what to do.

    If you have torn the mucle you will have extensive bruising in that area. Do you? If not, then you more than likely pulled or strained....yes they are different, strained being much less significant and therefore requiring less recuperative time.

    As was stated previously.......get to a dr.

    Exclamation

    bro i had the exact same thing. week 3 of my cycle i was doing shrugs and seperated trap from neck (bone). there arent any tendons or ligaments in the neck so its very easy to strain. when it does some of the muscle rips off of the bone. i was in so much pain i was puking and thought it would never fully recover. i took advil as pinn suggested and iced it. it is also important to take a few days off from gym. stay on juice as it will spead up the recovery proccess. after taking 3 or 4 days off. i just took it easy in the gym for a bit. now 2 weeks later its fully better. good luck bro. and remember, if u rest it, it will heal!

    thanks bro this is the kinda story i was hoping to hear... i got like 3 weeks til gotta go back to work so was stoked about working out hard all my holidays but with this i guess ill put stuff on backburner for a week and see how it goes.... i was scared that it wouldnt ever go away because it only hurts like you said once its strained... but thats done super easy and it goes from no pain to almost puking my balls off within a second...

    nope. i didnt. the reason is because if u keep training your body will have to heal those muscle groups as well as ur injured neck. but if u dont train and just rest eat and sleep for 4 days then ur body will only have one thing to work on. ur injured neck. i was on juice and didnt want to sit at home, but i knew if i kept reinjuring it, well, thats just foolish. look at me now. my neck is 100% and my body was just itching to hit the gym after the rest. i had to be careful not to go crazy ape shit and injure something else. remember i was off for 4-5 days and then took it easy for about another week. always do slow controlled movements. trust me, im a personal trainer. take it easy bro, u'll b ok.
