In brief: Seek medical help

Although the symptoms you describe could be a simple muscular problem, they could also be caused by heart disease.
Women especially have heart symptoms that present with atypical symptoms of pain in the back or neck as opposed to the front of the chest. I suggest you see your family doctor and investigate this further.
