Brief Answer:
brufen or voveran

Detailed Answer:

You most probably have a cervical muscle spasm.

If I were your treating doctor, I would ask you to take good analgesics like Brufen or Voveran thrice daily after food for next 3 days.

I also advice you to rest your neck completely. Complete bed rest for a day to get better soon.

Proper neck support in the form of neck collar will be helpful too.

Get well soon.

Brief Answer:
Dosage has to be individualized

Detailed Answer:

The dosage of both Brufen and Voveran has to be individualized depending on your body weight and the severity of pain.

I usually treat my patients with 400 mg of Brufen or 75 mg of Voveran.

Hope this helps you. Sorry for my late response. I was unwell.
