    The heat pack idea is the best one. Here is a link to a site that can help you figure out why it hurts

    I would make up a heat pack or use a covered hot water bottle or heating pad on it. If you take a shower, let the hot water run down your neck. I fell a few days ago and have hurt mine. The only thing that seems to help the pain is heat. You could also take some Tylenol or Motrin. I hope this has helped you.

    We all have woken up with a stiff and sore neck at one time in our lives. Most people will either ignore it or just take some aspirin to get rid of the pain. What we do at this point can make a dramatic difference in your overall health for the rest of your life.

    What is truly incredible is when you realize the neck must be strong enough to protect the very delicate nerve tissue of the spinal cord yet it must afford us the movement necessary to be able to turn our head 1800 degrees, and look up and down. With all that movement the neck must be strong enough to support the 10 pound head atop it even during these extreme movements.

    I had the same problem when my back tooth got infected. But my neck didn't hurt though. Just everything from my chin up did. Doctor would be the best bet.
