By location, where specifically is the pain in your neck? Can you describe the pain, frequency, pattern, type?
PS: Pain in the neck region alone would not be enough to be Fibromyalgia, the condition. If you clench your teeth that can trigger pain and spasm. In another post of yours you mention your dentist suggested "tmj". What are you doing to help that? Are you wearing a guard? You also mentioned you have the pain in the chin to the ear especially when you clean etc, you may be passively clenching, which may be triggering the facial pains. If you clench a lot it can cause other neck muscles to spasm. I take cal/mag to help muscle and nerve function. I have a problem with tmjd, clenching and bruxing but it's not limited to the head and neck. With Fibro, the pain and muscle trouble, joint pains are more widespread and not limited.
ps: Perhaps daily neck and shoulder range of motion gentle stretching will help you long term.
