Hello people, Today i've had an encounter with a Throat/neck problem. Meaning Both my throad and neck were giving me much pain... And still is.Anyways i have no idea why this is happening. Let me explain what is going on with my throat and neck. On my neck close to the adams apple, i feel pain when swallowing, eating, chewing and moving my jaw. With my throat, when eating and swallowing things i seem to feel a sort of pain.. It is kind of unexplainable... Anyways i don't know what i should do, should i just go to the doctor or what? Im afraid this could be some sort of tumour or something :S

Sounds like you have strep throat, swollen glands. I would gargle with salt water and see if that helps, if not you probably need to go to doctor for some antibiotics.

Might be viral infection, gargling with warm salty water can reduce the pain and inconvenience.
