Could sleeping on a poor pillow be the cause of tight neck muscles and tight muscles throughout the head? Have very poor posture also.

In brief: Maybe? But see a doc

Many things can cause neck pain.
Certainly sleeping on a pillow that's not the right fit for you can cause such things. I note that you talk about foot numbness in "conditions". That raises the possibility of disc issues in your back, and possibly your neck. To further assess that, you really need a good physical examination and some imaging to look into the issue. Please see your doctor soon.
