I have pain in my neck during my period. I am 36 yrs old and an Osteopath, so thought about it and there are a few factors. Hormones around period time aggravate inflammatory pain, hormones altering tension in muscles and ligaments, pelvic congestion aggravating lymphatic congestion. Another possibility is diaphragmatic endometriosis referring pain to the neck...I have felt like I have had endo since my 2nd c-section.

Well, a muscle pull sounds most probable. It is unlilekly that it can be related to mensturation. Try neck moving exercises,maintain a balanced posture,use a thin single pillow while sleeping,support your neck while sitting for long hours.If it is of severe in nature then your orthopaedician will be of more help.

It could be hormonal aggravation of inflammation of a musculoskeletal origin, hormones altering tension in muscle/ligament, lymphatic congestion, or subdiaphragmatic endometriosis with referred neck pain.
