    Hi Valval

    sounds like you are having a really bad day. Here are some ideas until you get to the doctor.

    Put you favourite soothing music on, just music no songs, and try some deep relaxation. Breathing slowly and deeply until you can feel your whole body relax.

    If ice hasn't worked try warmth or just put a scarf round your neck .

    Have you tried some anti-inflammatory gel on it?

    If the neck issues persist you may consider asking GP for a referral to neck specialist. An x-ray may not improve the matter but it may help a specialist get to the bottom of the issue and perhaps have some suggestions.
