vein pain

i just started getting a needle sharp pain in my neck below my ear extending to the jaw area when i swallow, what could cause this?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Considering your symptoms of pain on swallowing occurring below the ear, your symptoms could be due to temporomandibular (TMJ) joint arthritis. This is the jaw joint and inflammation of this joint can cause pain on opening the mouth and tenderness on palpating behind the ear. The pain can also be due to a throat infection, it could also be a lymph node enlargement. Only a consultation with your primary care physician can help diagnose.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
