You should probably go to the doctor and have your thyroid, lymph nodes,ect in you neck checked. If one of these are inflamed or have something wrong with it you could have problems swallowing. Hope this helps. Best wishes.
I have recently read a lot about this. It could be a lot of things.. it is usually a muscle spasm... if you happen to have a muscle relaxer try taking it to see if it goes away... if it does, it is simply a muscle spasm, if it doesnt it could be caused by a multitude of things, some very serious and some not serious at all. it is usually not a swollen node of some sort if it is not sore or you can not feel it on the outside and you can only feel it when you swallow. I for instance have this problem all of the time due to a congenital condition called chiari malformation. thyroid nodules can cause this problem, and so can a thyroid goitre, all benign, so can thyroid cancer, so can throat cancer, and so can just plain ol muscle spasm... the most common is muscle spasm under stress and dehydration also lack of magnesium.. hope this helps.
