In brief: Inflamation
You likely have inflammation around your upper throat.
If there is redness and swelling or if you are having fevers and chills it may be a sign of an infection and you should seek medical attention quickly. An infection in the neck can be very serious. If it is chronic you should also have your doctor look into your throat and evaluate for other causes.
