The back of my neck hurts when I look up. When I don't move it I have dull pain on the part where my left shoulder meets with the bottom of my neck.?

Neck strain/sprain: Often no specific injury, but many people suffer neck/shoulder pain unknowingly caused by long-term desk work (looking at the computer all day) and poor sleep position at night etc...
