A 18-year-old female asked:

Interesting!: Involvement of both sides of anterior neck and throat without other areas of sensory or pain involvement, suggests a non-neurologic cause. Things such as hives, thyroid inflammation, severe lymph node swelling, laryngitis are suggested. These things can also cause localized pain.
