sharp neck pain in left front side of neck...painful but quick?

I am currently waiting on my ultrasound results from getting my gallbladder/kidneys/liver checked, due to right upper quadrant pain that radiates to my back shoulder blade.  Last night, this pain was underneath both shoulder blades.  As I sat down to dinner with my husband and kids, I got this horrible shooting pain in my neck - like a knife or a very tight squeeze into my neck vein (front left neck just under the jaw bone.) It was horrible and I couldn't talk. But just as quickly as it came it left. Probably lasted 30 seconds or so.  I consider myself to have a high pain tolerance, but my goodness.

I am not a typical angina suspect - 30.. healthy, low bmi.. but I do have a strong family history of angina. Would love to brainstorm possibilities..    felt weird going down to the doc's considering the pain left so quickly.

thanks in advance!

Lots of these pains can due to a vertebral subluxation, meaning a misplaced vertebra in your neck and back. I have those and when I am in need of a treatment, the pain is really bad. Also, sometimes costochondritits can cause these feelings.

If it keeps up, I would see your doctor however, and also a good chiro, they can really do amazing things at times.
