Do you smoke?
How long has this been going on?
Are you currently sick with a cold or other upper respiratory infection?
Do you have any other symptoms?
Thanks for the reply
You are most likely coming down with an upper respiratory illness. Unfortunately, the smoking exacerbates (exaggerates) this. You need to take it easy, drink plenty of fluids and watch out for fever or other new symptoms. If you begin to produce an usual colored sputum (mucus you cough up) like brown, yellow, or blood tinged sputum, you will most likely need a chest xray and antibiotics if any bronchitis or pneumonia is found. Using a humidifier/vaporizer will help with the cough symptoms and the irritation when you cough and with the irritated airway.

is there any over counter med for this no insurance
You can take some over the counter mucinex to help loosen the mucus if you have any, and also an over the counter cough suppressant if you are coughing more than usual.
no mucus as of yet just burn and a little neck swelling trying to get rid of it before it really goes full blown
Unfortunately, if it is viral or bacterial, there is not much you can do over the counter. Just conventional things such as the humidifier, mucinex, and over the counter cough suppressants is about all you do at home.
No, no pain at all. Hope you feel better soon!
