It looks to me that there can be some infection in your spine and CT is not the right test for it, Rather I would suggest you to get MRI of the cervical spine to confirm the cause and as it looks to me that it can be a infection then you can receive surgical treatment for it. Till that time you should wear soft cervical collar to protect your neck as there can be chances of further complication.
