Neck Pain

How on earth can you 'sleep weird' and wake up with neck pain :(

All day I've had really bad pain when I turn my head left!

    Aye, it's a pain in the neck (ha! - see what I did there). I used to do this a lot when my hair was longer, cause I'd flick it out of the way half asleep and crick my neck.

    Ibuprofen and a hot water bottle on it should help :)

    I hate it when that happens, although it never usually lasts more than a day so I just avoid looking to the side until it goes away!

    I did the same thing :(
    I think it's cause my boyfriend always steals the good pillows and I get left with the shit ones :(

    I get this and have been told it's because I have tight neck muscles.

    I have 4 pillows :yum:

    2 at the side, and 2 are at the top, so imagine it like this

    I get this quite a bit, guess i just sleep with my head in a dodgy position for too long. Had whiplash a couple of
    years ago and have had a neck problem since so i do neck exercises and do as Olive says. A hot water bottle helps me so much, it's lovely :)
