my neck hurts

An X-ray of a 28-year-old male participant from the study.
from cnn article on neck horns

i notice that my neck hurts after i spend about 3 hours each morning on my computer using my laptop and occasionally looking at my cellphone if i need to

i reach up and find this tender spot that gets sore
i know since i am a doctor and took human anatomy that that spot is called the occipital protuberance

now mine which you cant really see is a big one

im sure if i had a shaved head that if you looked at the back of my head from afar
you would think you were looking at the end of a football

now after reading this article which i link here i understand why that hurts

like our president
had in his heel
i have
skull spur

i wonder if thats a medical condition that is in the medical books
i think not
its a digital age disease
years ago when folks would get atari tendinitis of the thumb

the infamous bone spurs in the foot that the president has or should i say says he had
is where the plantar fascia attaches to the heel bone or calcaneous
this plantar fascia holds the foot in its spring like position

women who wear those awful high hells designed by men mess up that spring like position
commonly athletes will get bone spurs and or plantar fasciitis
the constant pull on the fascia can lead to microtears that can be very slow to heal
and can be quite painful

i suffered from this called plantar fasciitis for several years
im sure i had those microtears
im sure if my foot was ever xrayed i would have bone spurs
they dont usually go away unless they are removed
these spurs can develop as calcium builds up along the fascia attachment to the heel bone
now back to my head

it seems that according to this article that folks are now developing these
what they called neck spurs
too much bending of the neck looking at computers and cell phones
especially vulnerable may be kids and young adults

is saw another article that said this isnt really happening

i dont know the truth
i believe the first article
i can reach up this morning after 2 hours on the computer
push on that skull knot
that hurts i said

the cure
stop looking down so much

lay down those electrical devices and enjoy whats going on around you
like talking with family and friends

the cure and treatment if its for real is simple
