Brief Answer:
Use warm compresses and antinflamatory drugs.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome Ask a doctor's service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

The headache you are currently having may be related to the cricked neck as it usually happens while on cricked neck.
I think you should use antinflamatory drugs such advil or acetaminophen for pain.
Also use warm compresses on neck to relax the muscles there and to help the stiffness and pain go away.
The symptoms may improve in three days and you will feel better soon.

Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
