Hello,
I have studied your case and I think you are having myalgia or muscle pain. This is due to fatigue or lack of salt in body.Before I advised you anything I would like to know little detail of the illness.

I do smoke regular and I drink more than 3 times a week. I'm trying to stop so I can get into shape. I don't have any swelling of XXXXXXX or fever. Doc checked me out. I drink plenty of water everyday no sodas! I m 5'9 and weigh around 190 no muscle. I be taken ibuprofen pills also but no relief

It's an all day stiffness of pain. It has been going on awhile in my right shoulder but mildly thought it might be a mild case of arthritis.but now it has increased in pain and has traveled to left side of shoulder. Sometimes it hurt feels like a blood clot.

Brief Answer:
it will go in three to four days

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I think you have muscle spasm of back and neck. This can occur due to sudden twisting or sleeping in wrong position. Taking single day muscle relaxant would not going to cure it. I will suggest you following.
1.Hot water fomentation
2.Continue cyclobenzoprine and Diclofenec for three days.
3.Volitran gel can be applied.
I hope your pain will improve in next three days.Let me know if their is any other followup questions.
thanks
