Question: I pulled a muscle or something in my front right side neck during a cough. It now hurts when I swallow and feels sort of numb otherwise. Now coughing causes sharp pain a 6 out of 10 level. What happened and should I go to emergency?

Hello,

I have studied your case. I believe it is mostly a pulled muscle and there is no need to rush to emergency. But before I go any further I would like to know Little detail of your illness.
1. since when you are having this problem ?
2. Do you smoke ?
3. Is this pain on movements or also during rest ?
