The good news is, it's pretty normal and in most cases will go away in about 4-6 weeks. I hope you feel better soon!
I was hoping you would chime in since you tried them a couple weeks ago! I never thought about trying a compress on the back of the neck at the same time. I am assuming it was a cold compress? I am working on your turtle right now, btw. . .
