Neck pain both sides
I had mild neck pain due to bad posture about 12 days back. I used heat and massage to bring the pain down. Now I still have pain but it's concentrated on my sides. The pain increases when I try to sleep, I have changed two pillows but both were of no use. The pain is not very severe, but discomforting. I have been sleeping on my stomach my whole life but after reading few articles, I have been trying to sleep on my sides. Perhaps is that the reason ? Also should I use a soft pillow or a firm pillow?

Hi... If u r comfortable sleeping sideways... Then go ahead with pillows supporting the gap between your head and shoulder...the head should not be left tilted towards the supported side.. The pain could be because of Faulty posture during sleep.. Apply ice on the neck and painful area a bit more frequently... Try neck stretches... Bending your neck sideways...and touching your chin to chest...

Changing the pillows will not help u too much untill u support ur neck properly...
