For the last 3 days I have had severe pain in my thyroid area when I swallow. I do not have a sore throat. The pain is deep in my neck. Any ideas?

In brief: Exam

You need to see a doctor to have an exam of the thyroid.
You can get fibrosis or inflammation of the thyroid gland or it could be another structure in the neck causing the problem.
