Neck pain with pins and needles

So I've woken up with a painful neck, think I just slept awkwardly. I've done it before and it goes by the next day. However, this time feels worse. I've got constant pain in my neck and shoulders, pins and needles in my arms and my lips bizarrely. I did the online 111 form and when I answered that I have pins and needles, it said to call 999 for an ambulance! I'm not going to, seems an overreaction. I don't know what to do if anything though or if I should just ride it out. I feel very weird but I don't want to use up any NHS resources right now and obviously I definitely do not wanna go to hospital.

Bump. How are you now?

Thank you, I'm okay now. After a couple of hours, the pins and needles had gone and I can move my head much easier now.

It sounds like a trapped nerve. I have bulging discs and that's what the symptoms are like. If it happens again, I'd consider physiotherapy
