    shoulder/trap pain when sleeping

    So ive been noticing the last couple weeks that when i go to sleep, ill wake up part way through the night with my shoulders and traps hurting like hell, to the point that its hard to move the arm on that side, and its both sides that do it, which one depends on how im laying.

    And when i do eventually get back to sleep, when i wake in the morning i have to like stand there and let my arms hang free and stretch some before it starts to feel better. Through the day i dont have any real issues and i can work out normally.



    Anyone got any ideas on how to make this shit go away?

    Stop doing that. And get a lacrosse ball into and around your scaps.

    You're pinching a bunch of shit off there. Not doing it will take some time but for now, put a pillow under your arm pit to decrease the angle.

    I used to sleep on my stomach with my right arm up under my pillow. My ac joint was ****ED. Trap was always tight and neck so tight I got headaches.

    Use the lacrosse ball by laying down and putting it under you. Move it around the shoulder blade. When you find a knot that hurts rest on it for 2 minutes then keep going. This works all over the body btw...

    Like snake said it will take time getting used to sleeping in a different position.

    Hugging a large pillow, is that we call a blow up doll now?
