Temporary neck pain, particularly of the left side, can be caused by fatigue, an improper sleeping position, and irritating daily activities. To be more literal, the neck pain we experience is caused by inflammation, muscle strain, or tension.

When should I worry about my left neck pain?

Seek medical care for neck pain with numbness or loss of strength in the arms or hands or for pain that shoots into a shoulder or down an arm.

What does it mean when the left side of your neck hurts?

Pain in the right or left side of your neck is usually nothing serious. It’s often caused by muscle strain, poor sleeping position, or bad posture. If the pain continues for more than a few days, see a doctor for recommendations on medical treatments as well as home-based remedies.

What is the most common cause of neck pain?

Poor posture, repititive movements, and strains may all cause neck pain. The most common cause of neck pain is a muscle strain, in which a muscle is stretched too far and tears. Neck muscle strain is typically caused by poor posture or support, such as sleeping with the neck in awkward positions.
