Out of nowhere my neck, upper back, and jaw muscles have gotten sore. I haven't laid down or strained them. It has even moved to my cheeks. What is it?

Bruxism: Hard to say without more information. Your symptoms often result from bruxism - clenching and grinding of the teeth. See your DDS or oral surgeon for assessment. If negative, see MD.
