Have you seen a doctor about it? There are times where they can give you some useful information about stretches and/or exercises you can do to help. Worst case you ask about "pain management" to see how you can live with it. If you have insurance you can try a physiotherapist too, they can help a lot.

As for the layoff, the first few are always hard. I remember a few years ago one of the apprentices got laid off at the end of the project and his reaction was hard to watch. Great guy, great worker, but he just didn't see it coming and he took it hard. Claim your EI as soon as you can and make sure to take the time you need to before you go back to work.
If you had a good relationship with your boss/colleagues before the project ended you could try to ask around once you are ready to go back and see if they know anybody who is looking for people. Making connections is essential in this industry.

Take care of yourself.

An engineering degree especially EE is essentially a math degree with some labs. Nothing practical about it. You learn a lot of related things but nothing an electrician does directly. There are a lot of “book smart” engineers that are a danger to themselves and others to be out of the office. Very, very few can do both. The few that can are highly sought after.
