Hi,
it seems that you have got throat infection resulting in spreading in the lymph nodes causing pain during head movements.
Take one course of antibiotic and antiinflammotry medicines.

thank you Dr. Ramesh M.Vachharajani.

i was trying to avoid going to the doctor and taking a prescription. how long until the infection goes away on it's own, and any home remedies recommended would be of help also. i've been drinking a lot of warm liquid, and started a warm salt water gargle.

thanks again!
