Why Does The Right Side Of My Neck Hurt
I don't think you: Can be sure that it is your artery, because it could be muscle, lymph node, or vein, or even pinched nerve. Unless you had an injury, it could be something serious. Please show it to a doctor for specific diagnosis and treatment.
Trauma?: Are there any swollen glands see your pcp.

Depends..: Did you suffer and injury? Did you do any erratic movements? It is important to know how pain started and what other symptoms you are experiencing at this time. If you didn't suffer any injuries or recent accidents, let's say you just woke up like that;icing the area 15-20 mins three times a day helps. However, it is always good that you visit your doctor. Ask your caregiver to take you for check up.See 1 more doctor answer
Evaluate Neck: If you are not improving have your doctor order a cervical spine mri. Many times a herniated disc in the neck can cause pain especially if you have not improved with the medications and physical therapy. If it is a herniated disc you may need evaluation from a spine specialist to determine what other options might be needed (injections, surgery, etc) to help reduce pain.
