I have severe, chronic neck pain and am 2 months into severe pain flareup. Even when I am not in a severe flare up, I have to be having a super good day to tolerate a haircut. Now,I'm in this pain flare up, and often it's hard to do my own hair the way I want it-much less have someone else work on it. (My neck just can't take the pressure of pulling on my hair/ bumping my head). I haven't had a haircut in 4 months- and am starting to look like Raggedy Anne. I certainly don't look my best- which is one more thing to deal with alongside all the other destruction chronic pain has wrought on my life...Have any of you experienced this problem, and what do you do?
