In brief: Evaluation Necessary
A pinched nerve should be properly evaluated.
It is best to see your physician and obtain a proper history, physical exam and obtain any diagnostic imaging (ie: x-ray or mri) in order to obtain an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. Possible treatment options but not limited to: physical therapy, chiropractic, interventional pain management, and/or orthopedic/spine surgeon may be necessary.

In brief: Time
This is probably a pinched nerve.
It could be occuring anywhere from your shouder to your neck. The treatment would consist of nsaids, heating pads, and light stretching. It will take time to heal as these muscles never get to relax. If the pain becomes too much, or if you notice muscle weakness or significant numbness you should consider a spine surgeon to evaluate your neck.

In brief: See your doctor
You can try over the counter anti-inflammatories like Ibuprofen or alleve.
But if you have weakness, numbess, tingling, or significant pain i would see a doctor for further evaluation and treatment. Physical therapy can sometimes be helpful.
