Pain: The pain you describe may be muscular in nature, especially if the pain is present better with rest. A course of physical therapy is a good option however cervical spine involvement can not be ruled out and you should continue to pursue a cervical MRI scan to assure that the problem is not in your neck. Since the pain has been present for over a year, the diagnostics should be completed.
