Reason for swelling where neck meets torso? How will it go?

I noticed two nights ago that the area where my neck meets my torso was swollen - searched internet to see called supraclavicular space. It happened again last night. I felt the swollen area and nothing is hard there, marked the perimeter, and went to bed. In the morning it was almost flat again. I looked around the internet and read it could be just a reaction to not feeling great lately or could be something more serious. How long should I give this to work itself out before going to a doctor?
