Ok, here is the deal. I, for about the last maybe 4 days or so, have had terrible tension in my neck and shoulders.

My posture is not the best. I have had alot of tension in my shoulders for a while, but it went away about a month ago, when things were revealed to me. if you know me, you will know what I am talking about.

OK, I was walking this morning and noticing, hey my posture has really improved since I have started walking, and since I have gotten , I'll just say it. Since my self esteem has come back to me.

I am wondering, since my body has been so used to being sitting not exactly as straight as it should, looking down as I walk, etc, and now, I sit up straight, look foward when I walk, etc, could that be the tension?

Or is it my situation? I dont know I just woke up that one morning and it was there and it wont go away, also in my neck.

I do have a curvature in my c spine from where I was VERY endowed for a long time and required breast reduction, but thats beside the point. This is different. thats there for good.

Does anyone know of this. Will a change in your posture cause tension in the neck and shoulders?

Help me! Love me be my friend even though I am a pain in the butt

Good posture is ALWAYS good for your genral health. You breathe better for one things when your lungs are not compressed by slumping, curved in shoulder, etc.

So, yes, I think bad posture could at least be increasing the problems from tension in your shoulders.
