Many possibilities: You are likely to be holding a lot of tension in your upper back and neck muscles. The question is why? At your age I would hope you could find more than symptomatic care. Posture, situational stressors, trauma, visual concerns, poor sleep, depression, toxins, etc. A good clinician can help you sort through the possibilities while providing symptomatic relief. All the best. ...Read more

So, you may want to experiment and modify your pillow height, and see if that makes a difference. ...Read more
