Brief Answer:
Muscular pain

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for the details.

From the details provided by you, it looks like a muscular catch. It could be due to undue stretch.

You can take Hifenac - MR once a night just before going to bed. Hope you are not allergic to any drugs. Its a muscle relaxant which reduce the muscular pull.

Other than this you can apply volini gel over the area with hot fomentation to relax your muscle. It should be fine within a day or two.

Follow proper posture while working along with few stretching exercises which can be followed during work, which can be searched on internet.

Hope this answers your query. If any further questions, will be happy to help you.
