It looks to me that you are having cervical spondylitis. It is causing pinch nerve in your neck. I would recommend you to avoid using pillow. Also learn physiotherapy for neck muscle strengthening exercise. You should also take pregabalin and methyocobal tablet. Avoid sitting in same posture for long time.
