Hi Keke

It depends how long your neck has been painful. If it is simply due to sleeping awkwardly, you will probably find that the pain goes away in a few days, but if the pain continues, you will need to get a medical opinion on what is causing the pain ie visit your doctor.

I hope it clears up soon.
