Over about the last month my neck has been hurting. It's not some acute injury, but just an ache.

I'm good if I'm upright, but the minute I lay down my neck seriously aches. Doesn't matter what pillow I use, or how I lay down...it aches.

The ache is from my neck up by my right ear, down through my right shoulder blade...and it REALLY hurts!!

I'm good if I don't lay down, but the minute I do, about 5 minutes later it starts to ache bad. There's no way I can lay which is comfortable. It just hurts!!

I've tried laying in our guest bed which is a "hard' mattress, and that seems to help some, but still no fix.

I can move my head/neck in all directions. And, when I'm awake my neck is fine. BUT, when I try to sleep my neck is in agony!! No matter what position.

I've been dealing with this for about 4 weeks now, and I just can't sleep anymore.

Any ideas about what may be going on?

Note - The pain feels like a "muscle cramp" down the right side of my neck into my shoulder blade, and it hurts BAD!!

PS - I'm old, so if I could just stay awake 24x7 I'd be fine, but I can't do this so ow I'm screwed

According to WebMD, you probably have neck cancer and about 3-6 months to live.

Exactly the same thing happens to me.

Get one of those hypoallegic pillow cases with a zipper. Put your current pillow into the zipper case. Take an old pillow and take some of the stuffing out. Put the stuffing in with your current pillow to raise your head just a small amount. Not too much stuffing. You may have to experiment. But if you raise your head just a bit with extra stuff I find this does the trick for me.

I once got out the shower leaned my neck over to dry somewhere and my head got stuck to near my shoulder for aprox 2mths.

Very very debilitating and sore, it was about 25 years ago and never returned thankfully so I'm feeling you on this one.

Suggestion - hot water bottle on the sorest spot for as long as you can tolerate it, keep the sore areas warm.

As for the cause - who knows you probably twisted weirdly and never realized.

But -

There is a condition where the spine near the skull starts collapsing and compressing where basic the head becomes to heavy for the collapsing spine section to support. I forgot this conditions name but if left untreated it causes INTERNAL CAPATATION, and of course no prizes for assuming you dont want that.

Keep it warm see a doc yesterday.

I had the same thing, it was a torn A/C joint in my shoulder... extremely painful, and the surgery was worse. I hope it is not that...

Radiating right shoulder pain, can be indicative of gall bladder inflammation. I hope it isn't that, either...

There is good news... check your PMs...

Last year my neck hurt so bad I went to physical therapy. This exercises in this video were close to what they had me do. The first one especially helped my neck but I did the first one sitting upright in a chair.

My other theory is stop reading mud-pit threads and your neck will feel better.

Go get it checked out by a real doctor, and do it soon.

I have this feeling that you are afraid of the doctors office. Just do it

When I went to the doctor he said come back in 2 months and see if it still hurts. I kid you not!

I hurt my neck and back multiple times in my life. The last time I hurt it bad, I was looking at my wife in the back seat, my mother was in the front passenger seat that evening. We got hit in the back by a car doing about forty mph or so, it totaled both cars. Never look in the back when at a stop lite, it really screws up the neck, I actually had a piece of the bone break off, a nob, on one of the vertebrae. They did not do surgery to remove the chunk of bone, the doctor said it would reabsorb into the body.

I had a plank slide off of the scaffolding and I went flying and the plank hit me on the head on the ground after I fell into a pile of wood. It took about ten years to get my back so it did not bother me much, things heal really slow when dealing with the backbone.

I sure hope you get some relief pretty quick. I have had symptoms that match what you say, I have had good luck with Chiropractors with back issues, just do not get sucked in by them. Some of them keep you coming back in and will not fix the problem right away, they work on everything else except what hurts first. I have gone to good ones and bad ones. The good ones are worth their weight in gold, the bad ones want all your gold.

I have had pain in the left side of my neck for the last 10 months.
It is tolerable most of the time during the day but it gets worse at night in bed.
I am a mailman and have always carried my mailbag with the strap on the left side of my neck.
Long story short I finally went to the doctor and he ordered an MRI which I just had this past Sunday and got the results on Monday.
Several of my cervical vertebrae on that side are bulging and pushing against my spinal cord.
One day last week, I had pain in my left shoulder so bad I thought about giving myself a bullet, when I sat down I couldn’t push myself up with my left arm and my wife had to help me get up.
I am going to see a specialist on Friday and I am afraid he will tell me I waited too long.
Go to a doctor and get it checked, don’t wait like I did.

I lean in this direction, the right shoulder blade is a liver diagnostic region in Oriental Medicine. However as a rancher, I can imagine quite a few things that you do daily that could of pulled you the wrong way.

If definitely go get yourself checked out. I've had some pains misdiagnosed because it was in a different spot than the problem. They call it deferred pain.

About 6 months ago my right flank started killing me. Then my lower gut. I ignored it. Finally after a bad morning i went into the ER about 3wks ago. Thought i had a kidney stone or major gut problems.

Turns out it was a broken L4 vertebra. If id have gone in sooner they say, I probably wouldn't have had done as much damage.

The shoulder neck thing says deferred pain to me. It may not be obvious, but it could be a gall stone etc. Better to get those dealt with right off. Saves a ton if pain and rehab later.

Wishing you the best. Hopefully it's just a pillow thing and a new one will fix you up.

Have you thought about seeing a chiropractor? I had something called TMJ, basically my jaw hurt because my neck was misaligned, I thought it was a tooth ache at first. I went to a chiropractor and for the first time in my life had my neck “popped”, it was amazing, next day my neck felt great and he gave me a few stretching suggestions. I haven't had the tmj since and now I just go a couple times a year when aches and pains show up.

My wife had a similar issue, neck pain that radiated up to her temples causing migraines. Also, she didn’t know this was out of the ordinary, she couldn’t check her blind spot while driving without turning her shoulders along with her head. Chiropractor adjusted her and pretty much solved both issues in 3 or 4 visits.

If your someone who likes popping your joints defiantly see a chiropractor, getting your neck adjusted feels amazing.

Well my friend, go see your Doc. Do you really think any of us could help? We are dangerous on a good day.

If you aren't losing mobility in your shoulder, or even if you are, go see your Doctor. The sooner you get it treated, the more likely you will be to have a good outcome.

Get it looked at. Don't mess around and put it off. Some things you really don't want to put off and your neck is one of them. Do it.
