I am 25 years old, I've always been very active. I am 5'7" and 160 lbs. I use to wrestle in college. I went for a run tonight and seemed to fatigue very quickly. I then developed a pain in the right side of my neck just below my jaw, it hurt pretty bad. The pain wouldn't go away until I finished running. I have had similar pains before but never this bad and once in a rare while. The thing that comes to mind to me is my carotid artery. It makes me worry a little bit. Does anyone have any idea what this is and if it's something I should see a doctor about?
