Does your neck hurt after sleep? Last week I wake up with a terrible pain in my neck. Is it possible because of the wrong position during sleep? How can I fix this?

That happens to me sometimes. I took a pillow away and lie flatter. Feels a lot better.
I don't know much about you.........but yes your neck pain could certainly be postural.
take ibuprofen 400 mgms for the pain and report back in 2 weeks time.

I agree with Patsy. I think it's a little strange to be supine and have your neck at an angle. I either use a very thin pillow or none at all.

Shoota, good work. You should be a detective.
those of us who change position during the night have to compromise, sanmac. If I lie on my side, a pillow keeps my neck level.
https://www.theanswerbank.co.uk/ChatterBank/Question1070224.htmlI know the link won't work, but pillows can be a serious help for sorting out neck pain
Cross two pillows and have the third lying flat across the crossed ones.
You need to lie flat on your back and put a small rolled up (long ways) towel in the small of your neck for support. Other than that, no pillow. That should sort it.
I think that many have encountered this problem at least once. I read many articles on this subject, and came to the conclusion that you need to train yourself to sleep in the correct position. By correct position, I mean sleep lying on my back, with a small pillow, preferably orthopedic. I recently purchased one here http://pregily.com/orthopedic-pillows/ . Also there is additional information.
