The pain comes from spasm of the muscles that overlie the bony spine or inflamed joints in the front (uncinate joints) and back (facet joints) of the spinal column in your neck.

Viral infection: It sounds like you have an upper respiratory infection. It is common with that to cough, have a sore throat and for lymph nodes to swell up (they fight off infection). If your sore throat is severe you may need to be tested for strep. If your symptoms do not resolve in 1-2 weeks then you should also be seen by a doctor. In the mean time push fluids, rest and use some cough syrup. ...Read more

This can cause some itching sensation. Tonsil neoplasm (asymmetry bothers me) or just mucosal allergy. Try Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for allergy. If in front of ear is tender with chewing, see dentist specializing in TMJ. Avoid excess chewing. ...Read more
