Hi,
How are you? Are there other symptoms present like cough, fever, colds? This could be caused by an inflamed lymph node, myofascial trigger points or sections within the various muscles of the body that have constricted and create pain that is consistent that can be triggered by various factors. Aside from anti inflammatory medications, other modalities like hot or cold packs, ultrasound treatment, electrical stimulation, massage and physical therapy may help. If it persists, it is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evalaution. Take care and do keep us posted.
