Your pain is most likely due to tight muscles of your spine and back. Or it could be as serious as a disc bulge. When you lay in a bed your body sinks into the mattress which causes these muscles to be longer. When you elongate a tight muscle it may cause pain. When you lie on the floor you’re supporting these muscles and your spine stays straight. You should look into getting myofascial release, stretching program, chiropractic care.

From the information you’re giving your neck pain is probably due to a forward head carriage. A forward head carriage is when the head is off the center axis and is in front of the shoulders. This puts extra stress on the muscles of the neck and cause misalignment of the cervical spinal bones. When you have a forward head carriage and lie on your back, you stretch the muscles pulling the head forward causing the joints of the back of your spine to “jam.” This is called facet imbrication. So your pain is either due to muscles being tight or facet imbrication. This is very common with people who sit at a computer workstation or drive for a living. You could also have a bulging disc. Also caused by the muscle tightness.

How I would treat this is through myofascial release, active release technique, and chiropractic manipulation. You need to loosen the muscles up by stretching, hot shower, nutrition, Heat/ice, or traction.
