In my opinion since he is having severe discomfort in the neck and X-Ray of the cervical spine are normal you should ask his doctor to refer him to radiology department for MRI of the head and neck.

X-Rays only tell information about the bony structure and not detailed information as compared to MRI.

Ideally he should be seen at the ER ASAP for further management.
