I have been feeling pain and discomfort on the right side of my neck for a little over a year now. I am 18 years old. When I first knew something was wrong, I had this feeling like my voice was distant and something was stuck in my throat. I went to my doctor and said that it felt like something was stuck in my throat. My doctor prescribed me acid reflux medicine. However, the discomfort persisted and the feeling only seemed to worsen. My doctor didn't know what was wrong, so I went to see an ENT doctor. The ENT doctor had me take a Thyroid test and a swallowing test and the tests came back negative. So my doctor had me do an x-ray of my neck. Everything looked normal, but I had an enlarged Thymus. So I went to see a Thymus gland specialist and he said that the thymus was enlarged but it shouldn't be giving me these symptoms. So below, I am listing the symptoms that I feel.

The main pain I feel is the area above the clavicle
Feeling of fullness in the right ear, as if it were partially blocked
Discomfort in the back right of the tongue if anything touched that area
Discomfort while swallowing on the right but not when eating
Discomfort/pain in the right area of the neck right under the corner of the jaw during loud speaking
In inability to raise my voice without pain/weakness on the right
A minor degree of daily tenseness in my right shoulder and neck
Occasional discomfort when yawning on the right side of the throat right behind the back of the tongue
Right tonsil slightly bigger than the left
Feeling of something being caught right under the tonsil right behind the back right portion of the tongue
The degree of discomfort can vary a lot
Nose bleeds occasionally but it has stopped as of now

Anything that will lead me into finding help would be so much appreciated!! Thank you in advance for comments, questions, and answers! I would love to solve this problem as soon as possible!

  • Have you ever gotten a CT scan of your neck? That can sometimes point to a cause that may be difficult to discover by physical examination or plain films of the neck.

  • Thanks for replying back! I have had a CT scan of my neck and all the doctors saw was scarred tissue. They also saw that my thymus gland was enlarged but, according to my doctors, that should not be giving me the kinds of pain I have. I don't know what it is but I am relying on God for my healing. So, All I know is that ***** took my sicknesses and carried my diseases and by His stripes I am healed! I refuse to worry about this anymore because I got things to do, people to see, and places to go (lol)! Thank you and God Bless!Have you ever gotten a CT scan of your neck? That can sometimes point to a cause that may be difficult to discover by physical examination or plain films of the neck.For anyone who is experiencing pain. Just remember that:I shall not die, but live, And declare the works of the LORD."(Psalms 118:17); God wishes that "above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth." (3 John 2); "He (*****) was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed." (Isaiah 53:5); and many more scriptures.People don't lose faith! If you believe and receive ***** as your Lord and Savior, you will be healed!
