The region is called angle of mandible (jaw bone) or parotid region. The neck muscle called sternocleidomastoid seems to have strained, due to strong burp or jerk.

Following would help you;

1) Ice compresses

2) Local analgesic cream.

3) Motrin / Tylenol.

4) Neck soft brace.

5) Neck care in the activities of daily living.

a) No working on computer for more than half an hour in a single stretch. Same for TV.

b) Monitors and televisions exactly in front (180 degrees).

c) Contour pillow: Should fill the hollow when lying on back or straight. Available over the counter.

Do I need a doctor ?will it heal?my cat was lunging across my neck the other day and his stomach was resting on my neck on the left side it wasn't hard but he's 16lbs,is that unrelated?

Yes this can be related. Cat's weight could have been the part of injury.

This is likely to heal on its own.

Cause you're telling me to do the same things as when they found my herniated. discs?

Ony severity of disease is different. Treatment is same.

If you pain; you have to do same measures. Only duration of recovery is different.

If you have fever due to virus, flu, pneumonia, stomach flu, sore throat, sinusitis? Do you take different medicine for fever? You take same medicine; Tylenol or Motrin.

If you have pain due to any reason; you take the same medicine.

Do I need to see the neurologist?another mri?

Give a week. If this does not get better or symptoms increase in severity; the best specialist would be MD in physical medicines and rehabilitation.

Neurologist would be consulted if you have numbness, tingling, pain in arm, forearm or hand.

How did burping start this?

Burping causes neck muscle movement too, which can be uncoordinated and cause the strain.
