Neck Pain, Sore Throat. What To Do?
Been having sore throat for the last few days due to allergy (Been working on a very dusty place)
Thanks for posting your query.
Pain on the side of the neck that is momentary could be due to a lymph node swelling in the area due to the allergic sore throat.
Other cause could be a muscle spasm or a nerve root irritation at the level of cervical spine. Most of the times such mild symptoms do subside on their own after adequate rest. Taking methylcobalamin supplements and avoiding using a pillow will be helpful.
In case the pain persists or is aggravated then stronger prescription medicines may be needed after an examination.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
