You appear to have an Acute neck strain. This is quiet common and usually not serious. Please consult an orthopaedist. You might need an X Ray followed by pain killers and muscle relaxants.
After the Pain comes down after a couple of days you will need exercises to strengthen your neck muscles and alteration in your  postural habits.

It seems like your neck Muscles would be in continuous tension leading to muscle stiffness. You need to see a physio to treat you and guide you with neck and scapula exercises with stretching routines for stiff muscles.

hi!!! its a common issues which occur at some point of time in life where neck muscles get strained because of faulty posture attained while sleeping!!! now because of this muscle strain there can be a facet joint locked which may restrict your neck movement in a particular direction or angle. that is why you may feel the pain till your upper back or sometimes even till mid back.
Next Steps
depending on the severity of strain and symptoms you may go ahead with muscle relaxant and cryotherapy (cold or ice massage). and do consult with a physiotherapist.
Health Tips
avoid going to somebody who claims to be local chiropractor. go for neck muscle strengthening once pain and strain subsides.
