Brief Answer:
Looks to be muscle spasm

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting
I have gone through your query carefully and it looks to be the muscle spasm of neck region. To confirm that I would like to know about neck movement, are they normal?
Is there any radiating pain that is pain going from neck to left upper limb region?
Meanwhile you may have-
1. Hot water fomentation along with gentle neck exercises
2. Pain killer (Ibuprofen) along with muscle relaxant like Thiocolchicoside will help.
Hope this helps and I shall be glad to answer any further query.
Take care
