I go years without headaches or hurling, so either one really throws me for a loop. But we all know people who have these issues frequently who simply get used to it.
What I'm used to is neck pain. It started after I was rear-ended in traffic in Washington, D.C., in the 1980s, seemed to ease, but then never quite went away. In recent years it has worsened, probably from being slumped over the computer so many hours a day.
I don't take anything for it, ever, because I don't want to make it worse by accident. I've known several people who worsen their back problems by medicating the pain so they don't know when they're straining it.
Have you had any experience like that?
