From your weight status, then you belong to excess weight (obesity). In people who have more weight, it is vulnerable to damage to the spine. So from the situation that you experience it might be if indeed when you lie down your head is very low, then this may be caused by abnormalities of the spinal structure of the neck region, it can cause the head to tilt to one side. Disorders of the cervical spine can also cause pain in the neck, and also pain in the arm.
But other than that the situation that you experience can also be caused by other causes such as normal variations of your body posture, or because of the accumulation of fat in the chest area so as to make the head appear lower.
Therefore, it is recommended that you see your doctor directly, so the doctor can check your condition directly, yes. Maybe later additional tests will be carried out such as X-ray examination if necessary.
