Three Kinds of Neck pain I get (Left and right side of the neck and does not go down the arms)

Type 1
.I have stiff neck, vomiting, and light hurt my eyes, pain comes once in 6 months and pain goes away after a night sleep(Blurred vision and Stiff neck).This was the kind of initial neck pain it started with and the first episode was at the age of 12 and in the initial 5-6 years used to get this kind of pain once in 2-3 weeks and gradually improved to once in 6-12 months

Type 2.
The pain is be short-lived, come and go, or become constant. (The frequency of pain is unknown it can come anytime). Goes away after taking pain killers and night sleep

Type 3. In the year 2016 mattress started causing neck pain- I get sore/ stiff neck (also neck pain switching between both the sides mostly right side) and kind of vomiting sensation/discomfort in the body (Had to change mattress and pillow every 2-3 months)
