Brief Answer:
Nerve damage since trauma.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

I think you should have gone to doctor at the moment of the fall to be checked for fractures or trauma.
I think you still have to go to doctor for an x-ray of cervical spine. A neurologist should also check nerve conditions. I think this situation is caused by trauma in nerve causing weakness of neck extensor muscles.
I believe you may need physical therapy to get back to normal.


Hope I have answered the question
