Popping sound from neck on turning, can hear fluid movement, pain, unable to move head. Treatment?

So I woke up today and went in the kitchen to grab a drink. I took a few sips and got back in my bed. I layed down and turned my neck to the left and heard a pop noise. Then I could hear fluid moving and then I felt instant PAIN. Now, I cannot turn my head up, down, or to the left. All I can do is look forward or to the right.

Hello Sam
It seems that you have muscular spasm of the neck which needs a proper rest and precaution to cure.
1. Avoid pillow while sleeping.
2. Use hard bed to sleep.
3. Apply local anti-inflammatory gels at the site.
4. Take muscle relaxant drugs to reduce pain and allowing painless movement of the neck.
5. Hot and Ice fermentation can help you.
6. Avoid all jerky movements of the neck.

Take proper medications and precautions and you will be better in couple of days.
Best Wishes
