Blame the couch!: You may have slept on the couch and rolled on your side, and slept that way for a long period of time. This is enough to cause your shoulder blade to be in a position that is not ideal unlike sleeping in your own bed. The pressure of side sleeping too long in one position can further affect your neck, shoulder positions and may cause your clavicle, AC joint and sternum discomfort.
