sharp neck pain

I am a 23 year old female. For a very long time  (I'd say 8 years or possibly longer) I have had an intermittent problem with my neck. It will happen without cause (or with cause that I have not pin pointed) where the left side of my neck will get an extremely sharp pain when I exhale. When this happens, I can't breathe properly as the pain is so intense so I have to take half breaths. The pain is not there when moving my head around, it is only present when I exhale deeply. If I were to hold my breath, I could move any which way I wanted and there would be no pain. To make it go away, I go to sleep on my right side and stay like that all night. The pain is not present in this position and I can breathe normally. It is usually gone in the morning. At it's worst, this happened to me maybe once a month. It is far less common now. However, when it does happen I am so miserable that I feel it is worth seeking the opinion of others to see what is going on.
Thanks

Hi Kat,  in my
work with chiropractic this is a very common
symptom associated with back & neck issues.
You may find that a trip to your chiropractor will
help to deal with this.

Back problems can make you feel like you cannot breathe
properly.
