Pain after neck popping sound

I was waking up this morning and stretching laying down and I felt and heard this loud crunching pop sound in my neck. Now my neck and back around my shoulder are really stiff and it hurts to turn my head in any direction but I can manage well enough to reach for things. It's a constant soreness/pain but hurts anytime I move.  Is this something I need to go to the hospital for? Should I just relax and message it or would heat help?

Based on your description, possibilities may include cervical strain or cervical disk disease.

For now, you can take pain relievers for a few days. If you improve, that is good. If pain does not settle down, you could consult a physician and get imaging of cervical spine.

I hope this helps! Take care!
