No redness or obvious swelling. It feels as if I am swallowing a horse. I also feel the pain if I push in on the right side of my neck.

Thank you for the information.There can be a few possibilities.It can be due to an inflammation of esophagus or structures around it like a lymph node.A soft tissue inflammation can be there too.A trauma from accidental swallowing of a bone piece can cause it.Reflux of acid can be factor.You can wait & watch.You can try antacid meanwhile.Tylenol can be taken too.If the symptom gets worse, I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.I hope this information helps.If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.Regards.
