Several days ago I started having slight pain in what feels like the right side of my larynx. It is not constant, but can occur with swallowing, and seems to be positional (if I crane my neck it occurs and causes me to cough). I have a little hoarseness, but it does not hurt to speak. It feels like a strain (does that make sense?), sort of dull, not sharp at all. If I cough and then swallow, it aches. No enlarged tonsils, no throat pain which resembles viral or bacterial infection, no fever, no white patches in throat. No pain on palpation. However, the pain is occurring more often today. Could I have caused some kind of strain by trying to clear my throat too vigorously, or by coughing too hard? And what can I do to relieve it (I know, don't cough!) - but anything else?
