Back injury

I have managed to injure my upper back while I was sleeping. The pain seems to be located at the top of my spine and between the upper part of my shoulder blades. It most painful when i try to straighten my neck
or turn to look from side to side, but my actual neck is ok.

Has anyone had this before? How long is the recovery time? I'm treating with ibuprofen and a hot blanket, but it's very painful. Luckily walking is ok, but I'm walking around with my head down as straightening my neck causes a pain that makes me feel quite sick.
