The neck and shoulders are very heavy, painful and stiff. Restless, and vision is often disturbed. Besides that, my right eye brow is always the embassy for days. Besides, it is very difficult for me right now to concentrate and remember. And often makes me depressed because it impedes me in my study activities, as well as work in analyzing research data. I have been undergoing medical treatment for the first 2 months, taking several medications. However, the medicine only works like reducing the time of illness, there is no improvement in recovery at that time, until the 3rd month.
