Mark,  I am in NO way an expert in this field, however, I was wondering if
the problem may be a pinched nerve in the back. I have back problems
myself and periodically get similar (although not to the extent you
described) symptoms.  I have noticed that when I sit at the computer for
any extendend time, I bring about these problems.

I only brought this up because of your job description. 

How's your posture?  (mine is poor)

I can say, I have serious doubts on a viral origin, but I would not count
it out.
