Throat feels tight, irritated throughout the day, tensed muscles on the front of neck. Causes?

I can see my epiglottis sticking up far in the back of my throat and throughout the day my throat feels tight and irritated. Sometimes when I swallow food I get the sensation that the food is stuck in my throat. Also, the muscles/ligaments on the front of my neck are really tense. What could be the cause of this? Should I be concerned?
