Feeling of ligament twisting near throat during burping, persisting soreness. What could have happened

A little bit ago I had burped and at roughly the same time it felt like a ligament or something get twisted or knotted up. It was a bit painful, maybe a 4 out of 10. The twist was near the front left of my throat at roughly the top of my adams apple. I twisted my head ahead to see if I could pull the twist out. Putting tension on the twist was a little painful. After about a minute I could feel the twist snap loose. The pain and tightness are gone. Now its just a little sore. I was outside in the cold so I was shivering at the time. What on earth happened? Should I be concerned?

It could be an acid reflux from the stomach which may have led to inflammation of mucosa of your throat. Take ranitidine tablet for few days and if symptoms persist, consult your doctor. Usually nothing like ligament twisting happens in this region.
