Hi Heidi,
That sounds like an injury you should get a professional opion on, like a physiotherapist. I have had a similar injury these past weeks, and yes – rest helps. Plus doing gentle exercises to release tension in your neck/shoulder/upper back. Warmth helps too. For drawing and painting I consciously vary my positions: sitting down and 45 degrees agle, standing up 90 degrees angle + limiting my drawing (too my chagrin). Hope this helps a bit, get well soon!
