I would see your family doc first and have a general neck and oral examination.
Plain x-rays of the neck to start with. If it persists then please get an MRI of the cervical spine.

It's unlikely to be an STD. You need to be checked by a doctor to determine what’s causing the pain. If your GP can’t determine the cause he will refer you to a specialist who will order a CT scan and X-rays to see if there is a problem with one of your discs or vertebrae in your neck.
