Thank you for the information,

The stiffness of the neck can be due diseases of the spine of the neck.

You need to have some investigations like Xray / scan to see the condition of the spine.

You should consult doctor again .

Till you see doctor you can take advil or motrin after food .

You can also apply heat pad over there.

I hope this information will be helpful.

Please ask if you need any clarification.

Best wishes.
