Thanks for writing to us.
The symptoms you are having are likely to be due to cervical spondylosis or a muscle spasm or tendonitis. Most of the times this can be taken care of by taking mild pain killers like ibuprofen and doing a hot fomentation. Muscle relaxants may help in persistent pain.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
