Brief Answer:
Spondylosis

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for writing back.

If you work sitting for long hours, I suspect the pain in you to be caused by Spondylosis. I do recommend a second set of work up in terms of Xrays and if needed MRI scans to identify the cause and the severity to place you on treatment.

Meanwhile do apply DICLOFENAC gel over the affected part. Also wear a neck collar to relax the neck muscles and the joints reducing the pain and halt the disease process.

Please let me know if you any doubts.
