Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Stiff neck can be due to a muscle spasm as it is of recent onset. I would suggest you to take tab. myospaz forte twice daily for 3 days after food. You can apply pain relief patches such as Hansaplast lion plaster.

In case your symptoms persists it is best to meet an orthopedician for a detailed examination and treatment.

I hope this answered your query.
