Pain in the neck while swallowing. Could this be due to parasites?

Hey the vein or the muscle in the left side of my neck hurts when I swallow . What could it be? Could it be a worm moving into my brain b/c I have been experiencing other weird symptoms as well that I related to parasites. I m sorry to jump to conclusions but I really need some reassurance on this because I have exams tomorrow and its stuff like this that scares me and makes me unable to concentrate. Thanks

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Public Forum

Common causes of difficulty in swallowing considering your case:
-Anxiety and stress: as you have exam, other weird symptoms, scared and fear of parasites going in brain. In such case there is spasm of throat.
-Other local pathology

These causes need to evaluated. But do not worry, it less likely due to parasites.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Wish you Good Health.
