In brief: Posture

Without a history of trauma, neck and shoulder pain can be caused by poor posture, a bad disc in the spine, or an irritated nerve in the neck.
Try placing a lumbar support behind your lower back when sitting to help straighten your shoulders. Sit closer to the table and avoid 'hunching' over the plate. If your pain doesn't improve in 2 weeks see your physician.

In brief: Fibromyalgia

It easy for me to say go to your physician for an evaluation, but in this cas that is the right thing to do.
When you have pain all over essentially, this is the first diagnoses that comes to mind. The next step is to evaluate you to see if you have what we call "trigger points", (see photo), or other more serious causes of multiple joint pains, such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus.
