Secondly, it could be that your major pectoral muscles are shortened. This may put pressure on your rhomboid muscles, and overstretch them. Try to stretch your pectorals and strengthen your rhomboids.

I have no medical experience, but this is what I currently do since I am having the same issue (although only for a few days now). It helped.

And please do warm up properly. You may feel uncomfortable when other people see you doing is (I rarely see people warming up without using a tennis ball on court), but you aught to. It saves you a lot of misery and pain. Good luck.
Thanks Frenzy. I do sit behind computer screen ALL day. What do you mean by set up your seat? I am using an ergonomic chair. I have a keyboard tray and what else should I be looking into? Please provide your personal experience.

Thanks!
