Looks like severe muscle spasm. Consult Physiotherapist. Take pain killers with muscle relaxant.

It would definitely go away with exercises. You should consult a Physiotherapist who is good in hands on therapy.

the problem you have described may be linked to trapezius strain / irritation (particularly upper fibers), which is a repetitive stress injury (RSI) often caused due to bad working posture possibly at your workplace. Consult an Occupational Therapist to correct your working and Driving Postures so that it is Ergonomically well adapted and customized for you in a manner which will not cause the weird burning sensation. some basic principles of taking microbreaks, shoulder shrugging exercise, scapular pinches are few things that will certainly make a huge difference till the time you consult an occupational therapist and eradicate the problem from the roots. For the second part of your question , yes it will go away with the exercises, BUT will again re-appear if the Correct Posture is not involved. THIRD PART, OBVIOUSLY, IF you are concerned for yourself you should worry.
Next Steps
consult an occupational Therapist as soon as possible, and use correct working postures and work ethics.
