This can be a spasm of the neck muscles.

You need to apply a hot pack to your neck to help the muscles relax.

You can try simple neck exercises like :

1. Slowly turn your head to the right until it hurts, hold and return it to the center. Do the same to the left.

2. Drop your chin slowly towards your chest, hold and relax. Bring your head back up.

3. Tilt your head straight over towards your left ear, hold and return it to the center. Do the same on the right side.

4. Tilt your head backward so that you can see the ceiling, hold, then bring your head back down.

If these do not help , you would need to see a doctor to look for a pinched nerve as the pain also goes down your back.
