In brief: Ice, rest massage
Ice packs, rest and massage and antiinflammatories can be very helpful.
You might need physical therapy but first an evaluation with a doctor to make sure you have no neurological findings.

In brief: Dont let it fester
Evaluation by a board certified pain specialist may be beneficial.
The trapezius muscles cover that area and muscular tension can often be the culprit. May also come from the cervical spine/neck as well. A physcial examination by a physician is necessary.
