Well you have traumatized the neck. Hopefully the vertebra are fine but for sure the muscles have been strained and are stiff and sore. Try heating and the passive neck exercises. Now the injury to the brain is of concern. You would be best advised to be checked out by your doctor to be sure no injury to the brain

Am concerned about your neck, and this needs to be X-rayed, so, find a local doctor, get examined, tested, and treated. Hopefully this will involve only a short period of symptoms. If cause was abusive, would notify authorities.
