Hi, Dr. Mo here with JA. Please let me review the information and I'll reply shortly.
Are you able to swallow okay? Any runny nose or congestion symptoms?
Usually that's a signs of irritation of the muscles surrounding the thyroid cartilage and pharynx. When you breathe in deep you have to open up the passageway which can irritate these muscles. If it was something inside the throat then you would likely have some sort of cold and flu symptoms as well.
Was there anything specifically you were worried about or thought it might be?
You know it doesn't sound like an infection. Doesn't sound like strep or pharyngitis or the other common infections of the throat that we are familiar with.
It's likely from a sore or pulled muscle in the neck. Nothing serious and likely will resolve on its own.
It's not an infection so no worries, this isn't anything you would pass on. Look for signs of an infection such as a fever or pain when swallowing.
Likely wise. I'm sure it will improve in a couple of days.
