Thanks for posting your query.

It might be due to pinched nerve at cervical region.

I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination. You may get the X-ray/ MRI of the area affected under his/her guidance.

Meanwhile you can take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to reduce inflammation and painand muscle relaxants to calm spasm.
