Thanks for posting your query.

From the details that you have shared it seems that there is some compression of nerve in neck region. When ever a nerve is compressed it can give rise to such kind of problem.

The reason for nerve compression could be:

Bad posture
Some minor injury
Over work or stress on that part

Please do following which should help:
Take analgesic for pain that you are comfortable with
Avoid lifting heavy weight
Avoid taking big pillow or more then one medium sized pillow
Apply local analgesic cream.

Please visit a doctor for further examination and treatment.

I hope this helps,

Wishing you good health.
