Thanks for your query.
the common cause for getting pain in neck or sore neck can be :-
-A sprain in neck muscle or,
-Cervical spondylosis.
Since the duration is quite long and keeping your age in mind it is more likely to be cervical spondylosis.
See if you have:-
-Tingling and numbness in arm on one side or both,
-Is there a stiffness or radiation of pain to the shoulder,
-Is the pain continuous or intermittent,
-Do you feel weakness or loss of sensation in hand or fingers?
-Have you undergone any investigation for it?
Please revert back with the answers to these queries to help you better.
Take care.
