Neck pain and stiff neck
Summary: Neck pain or a stiff neck is a common problem and generally nothing to worry about. The pain and stiffness usually gets better after a few days, and is not a sign of a more serious neck problem or underlying condition.

You can get a painful or stiff neck if you sleep in an awkward position, use a computer keyboard for a prolonged period of time, or even from sitting in a draught.

Anxiety and stress can also sometimes cause tension in your neck muscles, which can lead to pain in your neck.
