Thanks for posting your query.

Neck pain on right side adjacent to your shoulder seems to be due to muscle spasm.
It might be due to your bad posture during sleep.
Apply muscle relaxant gel and doing hot fomentation will be helpful to relieve the spasm and pain.
You can take antiinflammatory drug like ibuprofen one tab as and when required to relieve the pain. Avoid any strain to your neck .

Hope this will helps you. Let me know if you have any more concern.
Please accept my answer if you have no further query.

Wishing you speedy recovery.

Warm regards.
