See below : Hi there, sounds like a muscular problem related to the shoulder issue, don’t worry, if the shoulder issue was resolved properly by a doctor, the neck pain will go away, you could try off the counter pain relief medicine like Advil and put some warm pads over it and/or some pain relief cream. It should go away in 3-5 days.

Muscle : This is likely irritation to sterno cleido mastoid muscle. The muscle origin is on the mastoid process just behind ear and then travels to right clavicle.
