Its unlikely that you have full fledged spondylosis, but you are on the way. Thanks for posting your history, it tells us that bad posture was resopnsible for your condition. And if you don't change it you might land in spondylosis early. Since you dont have associated complications like tingling numbness and radiating pain in arms/hands you have nothing to worry. All you need to do is take adequate rest, hot water fomentation, discontinuation of pillow and use anti inflammatory medicines. Local ointment can also help. When you improve learn some neck isometric exercises. That is the only long term assurance against early onset cervical spondylosis.
