Hi Shannon,

Sorry you are having pain. I recommend that you ask your doctor or see another doctor and request imaging of your neck (cervical MRI). You could have a herniated disk which will require further work-up and treatment like physical therapy, oral steroids, and/or chiropractics. In the meantime, use of over-the-counter pain medicines like Motrin or Aleve may be helpful. Take these around the clock for maximum pain relief and with food to prevent stomach irritation.

Please reply with any further questions.
