Spine Surgeon 's  Response

This can occur due to disc problems in the cervical spine. When there is prolapse of the disc causing pressure on the nerves, it gives rise to this type of pain. Sometimes the pain can go along your arm and can also cause weakness of certain muscles it supply.

You are recommended to see your doctor, who will examine you, ask for some scans accordingly and plan your treatment course.

Till that time take some pain killers to reduce your pain.

General & Family Physician Dr. Olubusola Brimmo's  Response
This pain may be due to irritation of a nerve, or it may be due to inflammation or tearing in your esophagus. It may also be due to irritation of your diaphragm as well, I would encourage you to have a physical exam and testing as soon as possible by your doctor
