Stiff neck upon awakening

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

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,
