Its definitely muscl: strain BUT have it checked to ensure you haven't broken any bones in the C spine.
If its was a simple strain, then its already been 2 months since injury and it should have been greatly improved.
Besides soreness and swelling, are you getting any other symptoms?
I suggest have it seen, so as to remove any doubt that a bony injury occurred.
