Sometimes but not because of my pillow. I always ensure that I have my favorite pillow. I'm not used to big ones, I always have the flat and slim pillows. Anyway, i usually get pain when i wake up early afternoon and i'm so hungry. i usually sleep late and gets up early afternoon. of course, im already hungry by that time but i'm too sleepy to get up and take a bath then go get some food. The pain is unlikable..

I always wake up with my neck hurting but it hurts all day long not just when I wake up. It does hurt worse after sleeping on it all night long but I have learned to live with it I don't take pain pills for it I just deal with it.

I have degenerative joint disease which is a fancy way of saying I have global arthritis is most of my joints. I also recently dislocated my hip from a fall so pain has become a way of life for me. I wake up in pain, I go to bed in pain and I live my day in pain. I do have physical therapy 2-3 times per week in my home, and it helps to some degree, but I live with pain everyday. The doctors have prescribed anti-inflamitories, muscle relaxants, and narcotic pain medications. I try to avoid the narcotics as much as possible because I'm afraid of becoming addicted to them, but sometimes I have to use them in order to find some relief and get some sleep. I'd recommend talking to your doctor about some type of special pillow or bed attachment that would help you out. Just a suggestion.

Whats your age? I think you are having this because of repetitive stress injury. Do you use internet too ofter. If you do that much you get neck and back pain. Do you smoke, then you are sure to have GERD.
