Really? Thought I saw chest. Sorry about that. Are you sure you never sustained any injury to the neck?
Yes your sleeping position can be a cause. Have you tried to sleep without a pillow before? If yes, was there any improvement? If no, try and sleep with a pillow and see if it will improve.
You can also do cervical spine X-ray to look at the bones of your neck, this is just to rule out any potential problem like cervical spondylosis.
You can use topical analgesic for now e. g Neurogesic
