it looks to me that you are having cervical spondylitis. it is a disease in which nerve get pinch in neck bone. you can confirm the diagnosis by getting neck x ray. If x ray is showing changes of cervical spondylitis then take tablet pregabalin and methylcobalamine . avoid using very high pillow and learn neck muscle strengthening exercises.
