    I just went through this. Be carefull with the meds. I really
    developed stomach problems for the first time even using one of the
    new COX2 inhibitors. Of course, that was combined with massive amounts
    of Ibuprophen and Naproxin. I was off the bike for almost a month.
    Sleeping was impossible. Don't get me wrong, the meds helped, and I
    wouldn't have gotten better or been able to sleep or work without
    them. I was starting to see myself on a recumbent too! Leaning over
    made my biceps hurt and fingers go numb. I went through two Physical
    therapists before finding one who could help. Don't do anything that
    causes pain or sensations ( numbness/tingling ) that doesn't go away
    as soon as you stop.
    Cosider your posture and head position at all times. Work on
    maintaining a nuetral head position in line with your spine. Good
    luck. This can take a while to resolve.

    Another nice ride. Glad it went better than you thought and hopefully next
    year is even better.
