Neck pain, shoulder and arm pain, dehydration. What is wrong?

I have neck pain in the back of my neck and the pain travels down to the right shoulder and arm . The pain usually gets greater when I go to sleep. I m very active. Not sure if it s dehydration or due to the wrong pillow or a combination of both? I used an elevated cushion last night i.e. I bent it in 2 and put it under my shoulder blades and neck whilst reading and it gave me some relieft. Prior to going to bend I laid the cushion straight and I was able to sleep without taking pain killers - I was very surprised. Any advice?

Thank for asking to HCM, dehydration is out of question dehydration means you are loosing you body fluid either due to vomiting or watery diarrhea these is medical condition apart from this excessive heat can also cause rapid dehydration, you do not have such condition, it maybe some kind of muscular pain have some analgesic,,, do some exercise, will relieve the problem ,,, Have a good day.
