Should I keep working out?

Post by Hacutie297 » Sat Jun 30, 2018 10:57 pm

Hi,

I have a mild/soft pain in the left part of my neck, sometimes I feel it in the trapezius upper fibers and sometimes it's closer to my shoulder.

It's not a constant pain, it seems to vary depending on my position, since it appears if I sit down for a while and it eventually goes away if I lay down on the bed stretching my neck.

It has been two days, I did no exercise during those days, only rest, I am planning on going to the doctor if it persists.

Has anybody else experienced something like this? it seems like a soft temporary pain and I really hate skipping my training sessions, I would keep working out but since it's the neck I don't know... should I keep working out?

If you're not sure, get a doctor to look at it. Resting a few days won't hurt in any case.
