Thanks for posting your query

If you have persistent pain in the neck, it is ideal to do MRI neck. I would suggest you to see your primary care physician for detailed physical evaluation. He/she will suggest you relevant investigations if needed.

I hope, this answers your query. I will be available for follow up queries if any.

Get well soon.
