Because the collar bone does not really move, there are not really any major tendons that insert much on them and so tendinitis is not a real common cause of clavicle pain.

Guarding causes pain: When you have shoulder pain for a length of time you change the way you sit, stand and move, so your neck may be strained from the altered postures and motions. It's very common. And mild arthritis that was there before may become symptomatic, but less likely. Correct any muscle imbalance around the neck and middle back and the pain should resolve.
