Brief Answer:
Medications not recommended

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Muscle relaxant and diclofenac, or other pain medications are not safe in pregnancy.
I will suggest you to apply local analgesic ointments like volini spray and do neck exercises to get pain relief.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
