In brief: Muscle Spasm

The description of your symptoms sounds like a muscle spasm in your upper neck.
The brain subconsciously contracts the para vertebral muscles to prevent perceived spinal injury. This is the reason, the pain become worse during the day. If the pain/spasm does not improve significantly, then discussing the symptoms with your doctor should be the next step.
