Many people get this and it can be as simple as the way you sleep or can be the start of arthritis. You should have it checked out by a doctor. If it's your neck then go to a medical pharmacist and get a "spong roll." This is inserted along the inside edge of your pillow (between the pillow and the pillow case.) It works! I use one myself.
