Upper back generalized pain around/inside scapula, neck and goes down to middle part of back.

I always have a generalized pain around scapula (or between spinal and scapula region on both sides) or sometimes it feels like its also inside scapula plus neck and stiffness in upper chest bones.
I'm not of a "medical person" so its really hard for me to explain what are the exact bones involved but i always have more pain when i sit for longer hours on computer and its impossible for me to have a different practice because all my work is only on computer.

I'm 22 years old guy and around 3/4 years ago Ive been diagnosed for having a mild spondylitis when i went to an orthopedist and during that time i was told that one of my vertebral bone (ending of the neck) was swollen. So after 3-4 months of medicinal dosage, it was back to normal.

Having this increased whole back pain since around 8 months or so, Ive been to around 3 different hospitals and have had my checkups by senior orthopedists and after my different x-ray reports, all of them told me that i have got NO BONE DEFORMITY but only have calcium deficiency and a bit of posture problem and referred me to physiotherapists. That was a bit relaxing for me but the problem is the exercises prescribed by physiotherapists didn't really work as desired.

If someday i sleep with a pillow on, the next day i feel much pain so i don't use pillow at all.
People says its a posture problem but sometimes i get spasm in these areas specially neck and scapula region so i feel its not really normal and others who sit for more longer than me never ever had any posture problems and such a painful symptom as i have.

So if people out there suffering from something similar to this, i need a little help.
