Pain in throat, hurts to swallow. Solution for pain?

I recently sneezed and had a pain in my throat . Since then, it hurts to swallow . Everytime I sneeze or cough the pain gets worse. I am now starting to lose my voice. The pain seems to be localised to my Adam s apple and the top of my oesophagus (where it meets my jaw). It feels like I ve been punched in the throat. What have I done and how do I stop it from hurting?
