It sounds like you`re asking for a specific diagnosis and treatment recommendations, which is more than I can provide online. Only a detailed history and physical exam by a healthcare professional can provide enough information to make a specific diagnosis and provide treatment. Please discuss your concerns with your healthcare provider.
In the meantime, I would suggest that you apply heat to the area and try sleeping without a pillow. Also, you may be causing problems by some of your daily activities. I would not maintain a fixed position of your neck for more than 10 or 15 minutes at a time without taking a break. This could help minimize strain on already inflamed muscles.
