So last February or March I overdid it playing too long and ended up with some kind of strain injury in the muscles in my neck. I have taken it easy since then and not practiced at all, only played gigs. But the injury has not gotten any better. It stops hurting as long as I don't play. But even blowing a few notes on a super soft reed seems to aggravate the injury. The only thing that helps this is icing it, which brings down the pain for a while. Any ideas what this could be? My doc is clueless, wants to refer me to a specialist which would be expensive and involve a bunch of tests I don't want to do.
