From history it seems that due to your profession, sitting infront of computer for long time, there might be having some stiffness of neck muscles giving rise to this problem.
To get relief from your problem, go for,
1, sit straight on computer,
2, take rest for some time after constant computer work frequently.
3, go for regular neck muscle exercise,
4, relax your neck muscle during not on computer.
Ok and take care.

Dear Suresh
Welcome to Healthcaremagic

You should care about your posture of sitting infront of computer. Its very common problem in IT professional about stiffness in neck, also back pain. You didnot mention your age but continous use of computer will increase your problems. You have to relax or do exercise in regular interval and never stay in same posture for long time. For some days decrease the time of computer use. You may need some Ayurvedic oil massage to recover soon and yogic posture like bhujangasana will help you.
Take care

Heat it up. Heat increases circulation and can be effective for easing stiff muscles
Take a load off.
Take a nonprescription pain reliever. Over-the-counter pain relievers such as aspirin and ibuprofen can ease the pain and reduce inflammation.
