Guys, I'm getting old.
I messed up my shoulder sleeping.
This situation reminds me of the time Paul hurt his back sneezing. The doctor told him lots of people hurt their backs sneezing, and from what I have read online, a lot of people mess up their shoulders from sleeping!
Friday night is when it happened. I woke up Saturday and my left shoulder felt jacked up. It didn't feel great on Sunday either and on Monday it actually felt the worst! (Don't worry, I didn't lift at all every since my shoulder started hurting and I don't plan on lifting until it feels 100% for several days. I'M NOT MESSING WITH THIS.)
I think the reason it continued to feel worse is because I didn't sleep on my back, I slept on my right side. But what I have noticed is that it actually hurts my left shoulder when I sleep on my right side too. So now I will be a back sleeper until everything sorts itself out.
I've been taking it easy by not lifting my arm up and being careful with things like washing my hair and putting on a seat belt. I may look into a special pillow for sleeping, but first I am going to research and try to prop my neck up with my normal pillows (that will alleviate pressure on my shoulders) for now.
Have you ever hurt something from sleeping wrong?
