Certainly this is not OT this the thread for all these.
I had a major slip disc in C5 and C6 and was bed ridden for almost 1.5 months and then I had to give up gaming as well. I had to do so many exercises that I get tired and I literally gave up on that.
For now it's doesn't pain if I'm sitting normally but keeping the phone up for long and sleeping in bad posture lead to bad pain in morning..
Also my wife is physiotherapist and she knows it's difficult to maintain though i keep applying ice and warm patch as and when needed.
