Have pain in the neck

Hi I have a pain in my neck. It hurts when I swallow but it is not my throat. It appears to be on the left side, next to my throat. I can feel my jugular vein in the area so presume it may be a muscle. There does not appear to be any swelling. I have looked at the anatomy and it looks like the sternohyoid muscle. This is the 4th day I have had the pain. It is not dibilitating, but IT am constantly aware of it. Swallowing is tender, but I find that it has put me in quite a irratible mood.can you suggest anything.

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the neck is likely to be due to a muscular problem. This can be due to a sprain or spas in the area. Rest and hot fomentation will help in improvement.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
