I am sorry to hear about your injury and that you are still experiencing pain, at least while trying to sleep. Not knowing the severity of your neck injury, I hesitate to offer any suggestions. I suggest that you call your doctor and tell him or her that you wake up in pain and that the pain radiates down your back. One quick question- is this new or has this happened since you stopped wearing the neck brace? I would be concerned that something else may be going on.
