Pop in throat followed by intense pain?

Tonight I was eating dinner, pasta, I felt a pop in my throat followed by intense pain..

It now feels like there is a lump in my throat but not a typical sore throat. I've put ice on it but hours later I'm not getting any relief.  A nurse friend suggested that it may be a hyoid bone issue. Looking for some ideas on what it may be?

You mean you put ice on the outside of your throat?  What about gargling with salt water? Here's an article on the hyoid bone and clicking in the throat.  It's very rare.  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4922244/  Do you have tonsil stones?  Could a tonsil stone have released or burst?
