Hello There. I can understand your concern. its neither a nerve nor a vein. its a muscle pull/spasm. as of now, you can take a muscle relaxant pain killer like tab. zerodol-th8 once or twice a day after food as per your pain severity. in 3 day, it will subside. after that, you need to do neck muscle strengthening exercises daily. Best regards Dr. Anil kumar jain.

Likely you have a muscle spasm, usually due to unexpected move. Start with local spray and hot water bottle. You can take OTC meds Paracetamol and Ibuprofen. Move as much as possible, I know its painful!!! you still have to
Next Steps
Physician if you are no better in 48 hrs
