Causes Of Swollen Neck Muscle
Common: Neck muscle imbalance is quite common and often seen in people who spent most of their days sitting. Typically the posterior muscles become stretched and weak and the muscles in front (anterior) become short and tight. Rebalancing them is worthwhile. This can be done with a physical therapist and by doing exercises at home. I like yoga for this type of work as well.
It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length.

Neck: A pulled neck muscle can cause a lump at the base of your scull where the neck muscles insert, but not on top of your head where there are no muscles.

The area from the top/back of my right shoulder to the back right of my neck is swollen & the muscles there are tense. It causes a lot of pain. I used to have occassional muscle tension in my neck/shoulder/upper back, but now its more severe & common?
Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor.
Possibly: Anxiety often causes the tensing or spasming of muscles, particularly in the neck. If this continues or is particularly annoying, talk to your doctor of chiropractor about it.

In emotional threat, it pumps the same chemicals through us and our bodies respond in unique (maybe common) ways. Maybe, thrown off balance, you get dizzy. Not running, your most vulnerable muscles read the signal and tighten. CBT
