If you exaggerate the shoulder roll, is it possible to set your shoulders [or clavicle, other bones, joints, ligaments, etc.] too far back or something?
I ask because I've been having recurrent neck/throat irritation for months. The irritation is kinda like a scratchy feeling in the front of my throat, and I no longer think the problem is strictly in my neck. I think it's the shoulders.
This irritation makes it painful to stretchsit for too long, and it makes it nearly impossible to fall asleep. I've tried many neck positions, but it's usually only when I let my shoulders unroll-and-hunch that my throat feels like it's loose enough that I can sleep.
