Hi and thanks for the query,
Yes you are right it is most likely nerve pain from your cervical nerves. i would suggest you to see pain physician for further evaluation and the cause of pain. He can offer you nerve block or steroid shot if pain is not controlled with medications. Meanwhile take tylenol 2 tablets 8 hourly and apply ibuprofen gel and warm compresses.
I hope it helps.
Let me know if you have further questions.
