Muscle strain

Hello Doc, I've cold and a discomfort/clearing sensation in throat. Also I've slight neck pain and a slight head ache too at the back and sides of my head. I do NOT have fever, cough or vomiting. But I feel tired and at times my shoulders and arms pain too. Also,I'm pretty addicted to Internet and always sit with my iPad without any support to my back and my neck bent forward. Could this be the possible causes for neck pain?
