I had gone through the case and found that it might be due to cervical spondylitis which trapped the nerve or muscle spam only.

So go for cervical vertebrae x- ray to find the cause.

Meanwhile take mild painkiller and apply muscle relaxant gel and do neck exercise.

Avoid pillow and long time table work.

Hope my answer will be effective for you.
