Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor. In the mean time you may take Paracetamol for the pain, no more than 4 g in one day, no alcohol. Regular exercise may help in relaxing the muscles in the neck and alleviate pain. Wish you good health!
