Go to the GP, get a referral to a pain specialist. Steroid injections worked awesome on my trigger points in my back and trapezius. Other option is a good physio. Had both though. The physio helped, the steroids sorted it.

I'm just getting over something very similar. Physio, stretching and specific exercise has worked wonders.
Dr. Rob's recommended cure is a new bike. Nothing like a shiny new toy to motivate you out into the cold and dark! Mine should be arriving in the next couple of week
