Does she have a: sore throat?Did they look at her throat? A throat infection can cause neck pain and ear pain. If they fully examined her throat and neck and she has no fever, vomiting, rash, you can apply a warm compress,and give her pain medication.If those areas were not examined, or if she has the other symptoms,I would call her regular doctor or take her to the emergency room to be re-evaluated.

Neck spasm: Your child could have torticollis, which is spasm in the muscle of the neck. There is usually underlying lymph node infection or bad throat infection or abcess. I think you need to see a doctor quickly
