In case its stiffness and pain in the neck, take rest in flat supine position without pillow. You might require a soft cervical collar if pain is severe and persistent. Avoid movements at the neck region.
You might need to do : X-Ray cervical spine (AP and lateral).
If headache is severe and associated with episodes of giddiness then you need evaluation. But what I suggest is that you take rest and see if sleepiness , light headedness and headache subsides. If its still persistent then get a CT Scan brain (plain) done to rule out any head injury.
Also watch out for any drowsiness, vomiting, fits, blurring of vision, severe headache as it might indicate an underlying head injury.
