Thanks for posting your query.
There may be possibility of localized bruise formation or hematoma formation in neck muscle.
Presence of pain aggravating on neck movement suggests the diagnosis.
You should consult with general physician and should go for thorough check up.
You should also apply analgesic ointment along with hot fomentation for speedy recovery.
You should also take muscle relaxants.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
