If your neck becomes locked in an awkward position while you’re sleeping, or you sit at a desk for too long, you may suffer neck pain. A pinched nerve in your neck or an injury can also be the cause of your discomfort.
Neck pain is very common and can be suffered by anyone.
Sudden pain, stiffness or numbness are common symptoms but if you have pins and needles it could be something more serious.
Usually neck pain only lasts a couple of weeks so isn’t anything to worry about.
Don’t wear a neck collar or keep your neck in the same position for too long. Try to avoid sleeping on your front.
