In brief: PERHAPS DISC?
Sounds like more than a cervical strain.
You may have suffered a disc displacement, but you could have cervical spondyolosis, or even some issues in the proximal brachial plexus. Suggest evaluation with either an md or do physician, and perhaps some films of the neck.

In brief: MUST c physician
Base of skull is protecting crucial part of your upper spinal cord and portion of your posterior brain, cerebellum, basal ganglia.
Stop any movement or manipulation of head and neck, and see physician immediately. Since you will need imaging of cervical spine, probably best to go orthopedist, spine specialist, or er. Get advise from ur primary physician first. This may be more than neck strain!
