Awful right shoulder blade/neck pain, worse after waking & during sleep

I am 29 yrs old, in good health - I have never had any kind of neck or shoulder injury, but for the past month or so I've had this awful pain along my right shoulder blade and neck. I wake up several times during the night due to pain, and it always hurts the worst in the morning right when I get up. While resting, it is dull/achy, but if I turn my neck downwards or to the right I feel a sharp stab along the shoulder blade. When this first started, I thought it was just one of those "sleeping wrong" aches, but is this normal to persist and/or worsen for a month now? It is really getting bad, particularly at work, where I sit behind a computer and do a lot of typing. Any ideas?

My first thought is a postural-related issue. If what you say is true and that you've never injured your neck or shoulder, it's possible that you've developed poor posture from sitting behind a computer a lot. There are some exercises you can perform each day to help, but it would be better if you met with a reputable chiropractor in your area for an exam first... let them take a look at your spine, and then follow whatever supportive exercises they recommend.
