Neck pain from sleeping wrong

Common Questions and Answers about Neck pain from sleeping wrong


You have bruised it badly or twisted some muscles. Keep your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span></span> warm by wrapping a scarf around it. Take pain relief as prescribed. If it does not start to settle after a few days, make an appointment with your doctor again so that you can be referred for physiotherapy. Keep warm and stay out of draughts. Wishing you a speedy recovery.
in all probability this is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span></span> stiffness due to wr<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>g sleep<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g posture. Other than that it can be occipital neuralgia which results from compression of higher cervical vertebral nerves. It can also be due to an inflamed carotid artery or jugular vein. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage without examining. Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper investigations and referral. Hope this helps. Take care!
If your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span></span> MRI is clear then the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> could be referred to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span></span> due to spinal problems of the upper back, or it could be due to tight neck muscles, or due to stress and anxiety or due to clots in the carotid artery. Hence you can get a MRI of the upper back spine and a dopplar study of the carotids. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Meanwhile use a hard bed to sleep. Avoid a pillow.
I'll take ANY!! input from anyone out there. It has never lasted this long from sleep<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g wr<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>g. So I'm thinking it might be part of MY!!:(( withdrawl process. I sure hope that's what it is.
I was wondering about a herniated disc but I don't know much about the symptoms, I was told about 4 years ago after a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span></span> x-ray that my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span></span> was curved the wr<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>g way (I saw the x-ray and it was really weird) At that time I was working with a chiropractor and it got better for a while but now it is horrible! I also felt like I had multiple pinched nerves in my neck as well lately so that didn't help with the pain! I just didn't know if maybe it was just a pinched nerve causing everything?
That was my 8th neck nurgery and am fused from C3 thru T2, now that my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span></span> is totaly fused my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> is pretty much gone after 25 years, so it can still be fixed don't give up. Keep me posted, been there done that.
Felt burst of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> at left base of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span></span>. Think I blacked out momentarily. Shaking badly. But because the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> was just a burst, I thought I was OK. I contacted my neurosurgeon's office and was sent for a neck x-ray, which showed no fracture. Within 24-36 hours of accident developed severe neck pain in left side of neck; head tilted and turned far right. Feb - Aug: Because the neurosurgeon said I had whiplash, I turned to a D.O.
I would think that your discectomy is not related to your current problem. Your symptoms of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> after sleep<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g for 5-6 hours is a little odd. If your pain is throughout the day and worst at night, you are likely more sensitive to it when you are not doing anything else. If it is onLY at night, that is somewhat odd. I don't know how long you have had these symptoms for, but if it has been several months and you are onLY having upper back pain, an MRI of your thoracic spine is not a bad idea.
I know it took me over a year to put it together that any time I wore high heeled dress shoes, I would have upper back and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> for several days. one other thing I noticed in my case is sleep<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g later actually seemed to make it worse. When I sleep a whole 8-10 hrs, I wake up in pain. If I set an alarm for 5 hours, it is more of a stiffness. Good luck finding an explanation or cause & please post back if you find out something. I know the pain is unbearable.
The pain started suddenly and after I had been up for 4 hours, so I don't think it is from sleep<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g wr<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>g. Any idea what would cause this sudden onset of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>? I should also mention that I noticed two moles (both are quite large) behind my right ear about 3 weeks ago that were not there 6 weeks prior to me finding them, I know this for a fact as I had an up do hair style for a wedding and they were not present at this time.
I have a limp( not sure what it's from), have always had it. I am flatfooted and bowlegged also. I have been having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> for the last year. No xrays, but the GP feels its from stress and its muscular based. But I can only turn my neck so far to either side and people always ask me if theres something wrong with my neck. As for the limp, dont believe one leg is longer than the other, but when I walk my right hip turns in a weird way. There is no pain. Could I have hip dysplasia?
Hi, The most common cause of throbbing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> on one side is Carotidynia . Carotidynia is a common <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> syndrome characterised by dull, throbbing, localized pain over the carotid artery bifurcation, but may radiate to the mandible (jaw), cheek, eye, or ear on one side .The causes are Carotid artery aneurysm ,Cranial arteritis , infection , Carotid artery occlusion . Please go for an MRI or arteriography to rule out the condition .
Last night I tried sleeping in a position beneficial to my spine, by propping up my legs on pillows and laying on a rolled up pillow under my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span></span>. I fell asleep like that and woke up like that and this morning the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> was agony...ten times worse. It really feels like someone twisted my neck violently. Doing anything hurts, even just keeping my head straight or nodding the slightest bit. Even taking a deep breath sends a sharp stab down my neck and back. Where the heck did this come from??
it all seemed to start with a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in my head near the occipital area, then i started getting bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span></span> pain that starts in the middle of the lower part of neck (spine area) that spreads to the trapezius muscle. Well over the past 10 days i have had dizzy spells when standing first as though i was swaying, then just a muzzy head dizzy.
--I'm right behind you at 17--I posted on a higher thread that my emotions seem to be all over the place--I have felt anxious and overwhelmed most of the day--plus I am having severe radicular(nerve) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in my right arm--(I had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span></span> surgery several years ago, but the bone graft they took from my hip to replace the discs they removed "did't take")--Sooo anyway my "beast" (that's what I call the part of my brain that tries to lead me back to hydro-hell) is trying very hard a
The stiffness continued and the soreness seem to gradually move from my left side to the back of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span></span>. There is areas that feel tight. During this time from the soreness to touch and pain when I turned it would make me have headaches. (which I am taking ibuffren all day to maintain normal activity). I went to the doctor the second week and was told I had a sinus infection and swollen lymphnodes. Was given antibotics to take for a week.
About 5 months ago I went to the chiropractor for an adjustment because I had a pinched nerve between my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span></span> and shoulder (left side) I could barely move my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span></span> w/o feeling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>. So I went to see her - ended up getting a bruised spinal column b/c of the contraction machine and never went back (however my pinched nerve was fixed). Exactly one week ago, I woke up with a stiff neck, obviously I was sleeping wrong.
After few days without attending it, I played badminton after a gap of one month which aggrevate my problem more. Next day onwards, the problem become worst. I am having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> and right arm pain. Even I saw a doctor, he gave me ARCOCIA 120 MG .Even take this tablet for 4 days, I am still having the pain in my neck and right upper arm. This is happening for 2nd time within this year. Last time, my family doctor gave me some medicine which releieve me from the pain within 10 days.
He said hopefully the neck pain will not return, and my muscle spasms in my shoulder and upper back will either unlock and calm down or they will remain this way, attempting to protect my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span></span> from something that is still wr<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>g. I am unsure why I haven't been given an MRI yet, I guess they want to wait until I have had the pain for a longer period of time.
I also would like to note that I am not experiencing any sharp <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span></span>, rather it causes more of a great discomfort and uneasiness. I have seen a few doctors, gotten all kinds of bloodwork and a ct scan but everything has come back negative. A chiropractor I occasionally see claimed that there is definitely somethings cause a swelling in my neck, but he wasn't sure exactly what it could be, as x-rays showed that nothing was wrong with any off the bones in that area.
After the sugery pain subsided, I was free from the head/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span></span>/shoulder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> for about a month. Since then, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> has gotten worse, however two additional locations have started to hurt. It is now on the side of my head (between my eye and ear) and deep in my neck. It has accelerated to a boiling point, much like it did right before I was referred to the ENT who performed my surgery. I feel like my body is trying to tell me something. I have the pain all day; morning, noon and night.
The nights were bad enough but at least the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> subsided when I sat up/got up. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span></span> and tailbone are also both chronically sore now from the years of sitting upright at night. I am seeing a chiropractor again as, even though she can't seem to help the initial pain site (thoracic area) she does help with the referred pain. I do recommend that. It is interesting that both of you have such similar symptoms yet Spectrum's came on gradually.
im so happy on one note that i can see so good after being completely blind in my left eye yet on the other side of the coin i havent really been able to enjoy this bright colorful world that i live in due to this debilitating <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in my head and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span></span>... Not sure if its related to my surgery or not or if my eye is rejecting this implant eye doesnt hurt at all though.... Or is it something completely unrelated to my eye surgery..
It woke up one morning and thought I had a stiff <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span></span> from sleep<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g on a bad pillow, perhaps. It evolved during the day and by evening I was having terrible pain in my upper back notably between my shoulder blades, and I couldn't move my neck back. I couldn't move at all without terrible pain. My situation has evolved over three days to be a terrible pain underneath my left shoulder blade, a stiff neck, and now it feels like a lump in my throat with a need to burp that I can't get out.
ive had another seizure while i slept (i think i did but i was asleep so i dont know for sure) i peed myself, i was locked tight when i woke up and i was a walking zombie for 3 days after like a hangover from hell and a migraine so bad i had to get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> pills for the first time in my life. i feel for you. i hope we can find answers. i went from a healthy mom of 3 married to a soldier to a ticking time bomb in the matter of minutes and its been 6 weeks now.
I have the same thing....I have to SLOWLY pull up off of my pillow and it hurts SOOO bad! I feel like my ear would be draining liquid excessively, but nothing comes out! When I was in high school, my doc told me TMJ. I was also supposed to stop chewing gum. I believed her bc EVERYTIME I chew gum OR even the inside of my cheek (nervous habit) my ear will without fail hurt me that same night. STOP chewing gum. I am now 27 years old, and my ear still hurts just as bad.
00 am trying to relax and get the pain to go away. The only way that i ever go to sleep is when i pass out from the pain.
