Probably not: Superficial infections of skin and mucosal membranes by Candida causing local inflammation and discomfort are common. The pain and discomfort would be more related to the skin area, and would be distinguishable from true muscle and joint pain of the "neck, back and shoulder" I assume that you are referring to. If you ant to know the true cause of your issues, see the Dr for an evaluation.

For home exercises,: I would recommend seeing a physician first to make sure there are no disc problems or other issues. If it is just sore muscles, i would recommend stretching exercises. See: http://www.Spine-health.Com/conditions/neck-pain/neck-exercises-neck-pain strengthen neck muscles as well as work on posture and desk set up for ergonomic corrections. Hope that helps!
