Okay so since I've posted this I was able to remedy the situation some by wetting my hair and I'm no longer in pain. I also found the most irritation came from the fact that she braided up my edges super tight. So when I wet the hair I used a rat tail to pull the edges out of the braid. The bumps at the nape of my neck appear to be gone now and I feel like i've remedied the situation. Would you still reccomend completely rebraiding though?

Pain relief really won't help you in the long run. You would be better off taking it down and having the braids redone. I know it is a lot of work to take your sew in down have your hair re-braided and then weave your hair up again. If you leave the braids in as tight as they are you will run the risk of having permanent hair loss. It's better to be safe (and pain free) than sorry. Good luck.

Oh my goodness I need some advice. In my journey to do my own sew in, I realized that I am just not that good a braider. So I went to a salon run by two experienced African braiders and had the girl do my hair. She did not listen to me. I told her it hurt, I told her I have a sensitive scalp and not to braid too tight but she didn't listen. I've never had my head feel so tight two days after getting a sew in. But I really don't want to take it down after all the work I put in to sewing on these tracks. Any advice on how to get some relief from these tight ass braids?!?!Dead
