Can't concentrate

I'm eleven years old, I'm near my exams to go to the next grade level and my neck and back are killing my concentration in class. How is it that my back is hurting and my neck too. My parents tell me it's that I'm growing but I can't stand the fatigue anymore!!

Hi!
Long hours of studies and exam tensions could be the cause. It can also be wrong posture while you are sitting. It is worthwhile to get up after 30-45 minutes of studies and stretch yourself. Some exercise should be incorporated into our routine. You must also listen to music and do other such relaxing activities in between studies.
Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.

Hi GreciaDaisy,

I just read your comments. My best guess, your neck and back are probably
hurting due to stress. A lot of people keep their stress in their neck and
upper back, usually shoulders too. How do I know this ? That's where I
carry my stress. You say it's interfering with your concentration in class.
There's not much you can do about relieving neck and back pain in class that I can think of. However, when you get home, try putting an ice pack
on the back of your neck for about 10 minutes. Buy 2 ice packs or more.
You'll need to alernate them. Don't let the ice pack touch bare skin.
Wrap the ice pack in a relatively thin dish towel, A pillow case works well
too. Also if you're working on a computer, limit your amount of time working
on the computer to anywhere between 20 minutes to 30 minutes and then
take a break. I've had neck issues for a long time and go to regular
chiropractic appointments. This is what I do do to relieve neck and upper
back pain almost every day. I'm also a retired educator. Be well. Eve :)
