Pain: You may have a muscular strain or sprain of the cervical muscles. I would try some moist heat and an anti inflammatory such as Aleeve 400mg once a day with food.

Be seen: Multiple potential causes. I would not hesitate to be seen and evaluated for a specific diagnosis and to discuss treatment options.
