Muscular: More than likely this is increased muscle tension in the neck muscles and is related to chronic stress or strain such as can occur with certain activities,exercises or sleeping in awkward positions or with use of poor pillow support. Stress management, change of pillows or posture at work, muscle relaxants, massage therapy, antiinflammatories like Advil (ibuprofen) are possible treatment measures.
