Yes: If you are getting a stiff neck from sleeping, then the most likely cause is an uncomfortable position during sleep, such as sleeping on a couch or a chair. Find the cause first.

Exercises and pillow: If you awaken with a stiff neck each day i would suggest that you see yourpcp for an evaluation. You may have cervical spondylosis that can be diagnosed by x-rays or a disc degeneration that can be diagnosed by a mri. It simply may the need of a cervical pillow and exercises to eliminate your problem. See your pcp!

Pinched nerve: Pinched nerve at the wrist (carpal tunnel syndrome) is a common cause for such symptoms. However other causes of peripheral neuropathy should be considered and ruled out by history, physical exam and some blood tests. Diabetes, thyroid disease and some medications are common causes. I suggest you discuss with your pcp.

Memories 14 yrs ago?: There is no way to tell without all the details from that time 14 years ago, so one can go see a new neurologist a couple of times to together decide if it is worthwhile to go back in time. Sometimes there is a need to know exactly what happened. Other times, patients can be treated according to their present status without fully knowing what really happened long ago.

Vague: Unfortunately your symptom is pretty vague. You need to provide more information like duration, persistent or not, anything that flares it, any thing that relives it and so on and so forth...
