Have upper back pain and throat pain after starting swimming. Should I worry?

I started swimming, and 2 days after I have this muscle pain in my upper back followed by throat pain where the thyroid is located. When I swallow it feels like a knot on the right side, and after that I have pain that radiates to my back. Is the muscle pain in my back linked with the pain in my throat, or is the throat pain a reason for concern? The pain has been going on for three days and still going strong.

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the back that you are having is likely to be related to a muscle spasm.
The pain in the throat is not likely to be related to the back pain. A throat infection is a more likely cause. Mild pain killers, hot fomentation, warm saline gargles and muscle relaxants will help in decreasing the symptoms.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. You can consult me again directly through my profile URL
