Thanks for writing to us.
Neck pain usually results from the muscle spasm around neck and especially trapezius muscle spasm. It could be simple muscle spasm or may be cervical disc prolapse. I would suggest to get spine xrays to rule out serious spine issue.
For muscle spasm, please start anti inflammatory with muscle relaxant and physiotherapy. Sometimes pain block in trapezius helps. Gradually need to start neck muscle stretching exercise.
I would suggest to consult orthpaedic doctor and get spine xrays. Thanks.
