Chronic neck and shoulder pain

Hi, I'm a 21 year old female, experiencing chronic neck and shoulder pain. It ranges from dull to severe and happens when I stand or walk for over an hour. I've been experiencing this since I was a child and have never received an explanation or treatment. I'm not sure if it's related, but I also have a particularly enlarged bone that sticks out when I tilt my head down, at the base of the back of my neck.
