Thanks for the details

You should take Ibuprofen

You should apply heat pads on the neck

This will get better in next couple of days

You can also apply Capsaicin cream over the neck as well

What happens if the neck pain gets worse
Expert:  DR. EHTISHAM replied 4 days ago.

It will get better in a couple of days

This is generally due to impact of trauma

Since you already have a CT scan so it is unlikely to be anything serious and will definitely get better

Please do let me know if you have any other question
