Hi!
I am sorry to hear about your medical problems.  There is a chance that you have compression of the spinal nerves in the cervical spine region. Use a good computer chair with ample back and wrist support. Improve your posture. Do neck exercises everyday twice a day. Use a local pain relief gel/cream/spray on your upper back and neck. Ask someone to gently massage your upper back and neck.
Use a hard bed to sleep. Avoid a pillow. Roll a towel and place it under your neck while sleeping on the back and between head and shoulder when lying on the side. Initially this will be uncomfortable but with time the acupressure usually works.
If all these measures do not help, please consult a doctor.
Take care!
