It can be a muscular pain or myalgia.Thats why it improved by little exercise.You should take rest .Avoid lifting heavy weights.Take one tab Ibuprofen or Aleve .Drink more water.Causative agent can be a bad posture ,heavy weight lifting ,exercise etc.

Thank you for answering my question and it does help in some ways because I did not lift w thing heavily over weekend, so what is other cause?
Expert:  Dr. Nomi replied 6 years ago.
Muscular pain is not always related to lifting weights or pulling some heavy object.Other possibility can be a renal or ureteric stone,kidney infections ,diverticultis,irritable bowel syndrome.However,there is some thing related with all these problems like in kidney infections you might be having urgency and frequency of urine.In irritable bowel syndrome there will be episodes of diarrhea alternating with constipation.In diverticultis and renal stone pain is unbearable and is not relieved easily.

Ok, I am feeling fine today after drinking water and taking the Ibuprofen tablet. No pain at the moment since this morning. I think it was due to the way I sit when working on computer for too long and it makes my shoulder uncomfortable?

Yes,indeed the culprit can be a bad posture.
Wish you good health.
