Pulled neck muscle with radiating shoulder and arm pain...

I believe I have just pulled a muscle in my neck. I had a sudden, terrible pain from the base of my skull, down my neck and to my shoulder. 10 minutes later now, the muscle around my shoulder is on fire and the pain is now radiating down my upper arm. I have an ice pack on my upper neck and it is helping but I can barely type this right now as my arm hardly wants to move. my shoulder wont hold it. This is awful!  It was not a traumatic injury, more of an awkward strain pull thing... what do I do?!

I would recommend you search online for a reputable chiropractor in your area. The ice will provide temporary relief, but if a structural problem is causing this pain, then a structural solution is necessary.
