Hello,

Such type of chronic pain can be due to following reasons:
-Fibromyalgia
-Calcium deficiency
-Osteopenia or osteoporosis
-Abnormal body posture
-Spondylosis
-Anaemia

To rule out all these, I shall advise you to have routine blood investigation including CBC, ESR, serum vitamin D, liver and renal function tests, etc. At present you should do following to have relief:
-You may have a mild analgesic like Advil or Aleve for relief
-Start taking a multivitamin supplement
-Start doing exercises to strengthen cervical muscles

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Mukesh Tiwari, Orthopedic Surgeon
