Welcome to the Pain Mangement Forum. I am sorry that you have had pain now for one month.
Did you strike your head or were you involved in an accident? Did you have a virus or were you ill shortly before these symptoms began?
Yes as Caregiver said the sides of our neck contains the carotid artery. According to your profile page you are just 19 years old. It is highly unlikely that you have stenosis (narrowing) of the carotid artery. However that does not mean that it is impossible.
There are other conditions that could account for your symptoms.It is impossible to "guess" which one you may be experiencing. Certainly if you are having problems in an artery that is radiating to your head and eye it needs immediate medical attention.
I hope you will let us know how you are doing. I wish you the best of luck.
