My son woke up in the middle of the night screaming. It took hours to figure out exactly what was wrong and calm him down. He has an extremely sore neck. He can''t look up, but can turn his neck from side to side. He has no fever or other symptoms. I have been carrying him around all day, and if you move him even slightly the wrong way he screams. I tried to get him to relax a bit in the bath with me but he just panicked. He is finally sleeping. He did not fall out of the bed. His neck was fine before he went to bed. I couldn't see his position when I woke up, but I think his head MAY have been hanging over the edge for some reason. My dad says he had a similar experience, and the pain went away in a few days. There is no bruising or swelling. No outward visible signs. Any ideas or suggestons? I hope this is coherent. Rough day. Thanks.
