In brief: See below

This could be a variety of issues.
I recommend sleeping on your back with a pillow under your knees. Try to get between 7 to 9 hours of sleep. Use a comfortable mattress. Perform stretches of your neck and low back before getting out of bed for a few minutes. Exercise sith focus on the core muscles of the neck and back. If the symptoms continue, see your general medicine doctor.
