Stuck stem

My olde quill type stemme hath become stucke.

Weather and short days have forced me to the trainer. So I sez to myself 'what good is aerodynamics when I have to use a fan to move air in the first place, I'm raisin' the stinkin' bars.'


I loosened the stem bolt, and had to tap on it to knock the wedge loose. So far, so good. But the stem is still tight as Dick's hat-band. It's all I can do to twist the bars/stem side-to-side, to say nothing of raising them. This seems like a very bad thing. Any suggestions as to what's gone wrong and/or how to get it loose?
