I understand your concerns.
Your neck swelling could be due to thyroid swelling or lymph n ode swelling.
Consult a general physician to confirm.
Tightness around neck may be due to anxiety you mentioned.
Thinking is a process and cannot be stopped even in sleeping.
We have to strreamline our thinking by actively engaging in work, leisure time activities, hobbies etc.
Worries cannot cure dieases, worries encourage body problems to go on.
But being happy even though you have problems, can cure your problms.
Be happy.
Wish you a good future.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Public Forum

Your neck swelling can occur due to thyroid swelling and swollen lymph nodes or Both. It is better to get yourself examined by general surgeon.

You may need investigation for thyroid hormones and biopsy from lymph nodes. Derange thyroid hormonal levels is common cause of anxiety which will relieved after treatment. So, do not worry and follow above advice.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Wish you Good Health.
