    Ever had whiplash from biking? Hit a small jump pretty awkwardly (did not crash).

    While charging through some technical downhill and getting bounced around, I hit what could have been a good little stump jump a little unprepared and got slightly rocked by it, didnt fall or even stop, and had no issues continuing the ride but i felt the whip of my neck.

    After realizing some sharp pain that night and the next day i went to urgent care. She told me i probably just strained the muscles, that it was unlikely there was any disc issues, told me to take some anti-inflammatory (advil) and try some stretches.

    5 days later i think some of the pain has gotten better but its still definitely sore.

    Anyone else ever do this to themselves?

    It's happened to my when a pretty woman passes me going the other way.
    Use it, use it, use it while you still have it.

    Semi-amusing story- one time a group of us were going on a biking/camping trip. On the way there, I head-banged briefly to a song and pulled a muscle in my neck. Needless to say, it was not the most fun weekend I've ever had.
    I wouldn't even get my hair cut except it's near the liquor store and it seems like my eyebrows need trimming now and then.

    Oh, something by Engelbert, probably. Lesbian Seagull, maybe?
