    Sudden severe neck pain

    I was walking my dogs this morning when I suddenly felt pain in the left side of my neck running from base of neck to mid-ear.  I have iced it and taken two Advil. Is there anything else I can be doing to help relieve it?  I feel that I have strained or sprained something.  I can turn my head to the right and lower it to the front with no pain, but I cannot turn my head to the left or lower it to the back without pain.  Until I can see my doctor, is there anything I can/should be doing?
