<cue music> Things that make you go, 'hmm' I had something similar happen but much more severe than what you describe. I mentioned it in another post last month. The weekend after Thanksgiving (US) I had been putting up Christmas decorations, which is when I usually do it. I had no issues until 3am Monday morning. I woke up in physical tears I was in so much pain. I could barely breathe. I couldn't find a position that didn't create a stabbing sensation in my right shoulder. I finally found that if I laid on my left side and rested my arm straight down my right side, so my body was fully supporting the weight, the pain was manageable. I could only sit or stand for a few minutes at a time before needing to lie back down or collapse from the pain. I saw my massage therapist Monday afternoon but she couldn't do much. She said all 4 muscles in my shoulder were locked tight. Every time she worked on one, other muscles down my arm and back would twitch and spasm. I was like that for 3 days. On Wednesday I broke down and went to the urgent care (I rarely go to doctors so I don't even have a primary care physician). They had no idea what was wrong but thought it may be a pinched nerve. They gave me a cortisone shot and by the next day I could lay in most positions with minimal pain but still couldn't sit or stand more than a few minutes. Up till this point, I couldn't try any np stuff because I couldn't get beyond the pain in my physical body to focus on the np. I had asked my friend B if she saw anything and she said all she was getting was that too much emotional stuff was coming up and I wasn't dealing with it. This was the universe forcing me to lie still and just be. And I hated it. It was the holidays, I had everything planned on what needed to be done before my daughter came home. She hadn't been home for Christmas in 2 years and she was bringing her girlfriend. It was a "meet the family" visit. I hadn't baked anything yet, hadn't finished the decorations, I was stressed and upset the entire time. How the hell I was supposed to "be" was beyond me. Anyway, I also went to an acupuncturist that Friday. She was AMAZING. I hadn't been to her in about 15 years. The rest of the day after leaving her office I felt really bizarre. Almost like a water balloon that was shaken. Energy felt like it was sloshing and moving around inside. My head was buzzing and my right leg was tingling. By the next day, I could stand for about an hour before needing to lie down. She saw me 4 times over the next week. By the end I was able to move around for 2-3 hours. Then I could sit, lying back, without needing to fully lie down. I saw her for 5 weeks, tapering down to once/week. I'm still not quite normal, but very close. After the first week of acupuncture, the pain lying down was gone and I could focus. I immediately asked my guide, "What the hell?!" He's laughing as I type this. He wouldn't tell me what happened or why. I know it was energy related from the way the acupuncture worked. Whatever had come up, I'm glad it's out.
