Pain on left side of the neck/throat

Its been ten days now that I have a pain on the left side of my neck (neck area below my left ear and up to where the neck finds the torso) only when I swallow expecially cold liquids. It is not a sore throat rather than a soar neck type of thing. Additionally my left ear, I wouldn't say it is hurting, but it feels rather sensitive as it does the rest of my head around that area. I can go to my GP but he has proven to be incompetent for simpler things and he would not send me to the hospital for further exams but only prescribe antibiotics that I dont want to take. Furthermore, I occasionally get a very sensitive feeling every a 3-4 month period in way that I would start feeling the whole left side of my whole head (or sometimes right) very sensitive including the hair area neck, ear but it would go away after 4-5 days. You think my current problem could be associated/connected with that? Do you have any suggestion what any of these might be or do you have similar issue?
