Had a stiff neck a week ago. But the same gets aggravated mainly on my right shoulder while sleeping on my left side. After waking up its much better only some discomfort remains there. Not taken any medication. Generally stiff neck does not take so much time. Why is there pain onky while sleeping on my left side.
