The fall and resulting injury has probably involved deep structure in your neck like ligaments or muscles. Following injury muscles become stiff (spasm) to minimize movement and to reduce pain. You need to undergo reevaluation because the pain has persisted for longer. "Everything is fine" in emergency setting of head injury may mean that brain is not injured, nonetheless other minor injuries too need care. revisit your doctor and simple medications may be helpful.
Good luck.
