Hi have you tried having a stiff neck after sleeping for like 3hrs?
I had this weird experience before after sleeping at around 4am then when I woke up at 7am I already had a stiff neck.
And it hurts real bad.
Any idea anyone?

Thank you.


  • You probably got injured by your sleep position. This used to happen to me all the time, until I learned what pillows and such were good for my neck. You may be sleeping on a pillow that is too high for your neck, or maybe have been sleeping on your side without the proper alignment. The best thing to do is fold up a blanket and lay it flat under your back and sleep on your back for a few nights without a pillow and see if your neck starts to get better. You may also need a mattress that will keep your body aligned right. I'd look into one of those gel beds,
