As history indicates that there is Trapezitis. This may be due to nerve root entrapment as there is no head extension. A cervical spine MRI is suggested.

I will advise to take MRI of the neck, use a cervical soft pillow, hot water fermentation for now. Wait for the pain to come down.

Once it's bearable pain I will advise starting exercising the neck muscles to make it stronger to hold the spine in a neutral position.

Continue strengthening the neck muscles along with shoulder muscles.

Also me an active effort to keep the posture in control.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
