In Pain

I am 34 years old, recently diagnosed with low level of hypothyroid, and a little elevated protein level . I have a very stressful life and still trying to manage everything ... I have become more aware of my health when it telltale signs of pain and aches start coming.
My concern is my back area which hurts, sometimes after a night's sleep. The whole back, ribcage area feel very pain as if I had been doing some hard work. (I had just woken up from sleep). My neck hurts. When I tilt my neck, it hurts even more both sides. The pain even causes me pain at the back of my head, occasionally a pricking pain at the front of my head.
I usually apply medicated oil to ease the pain (muscular aches) on my shoulders but it has been a number of days now.
I work hard for long hours, and have a challenging time at home too. Oh, I have finished my tyroxin med (yet no time to meet up with doc yet) and recently drink more water in a day. I also sleep average about 6 hours a day.
Should I be seriously worried?

Hi everyone,

I checked this message board again, but only to inform everyone that a good massage, some stretching exercises and better stress management will help to relieve the pains and aches
