Pain near larynx.

I been having pains on the sides of my throat, NOT like a sore throat, but a pain that hurts when I sneeze, cough or sometimes just turn my head. Its down around my Adam's apple or maybe just below it on both sides. I told my Dr. and he said, gargle with salt water. But it not a sore throat pain. Any ideas what might be causing this pain ?

Make an appointment to see your doctor or a different one.

Tell him again of the pain on both sides near your Adam's apple and ask for your thyroid gland to be checked out.

The thyroid gland is like a butterfly shape just around that area.  There may be a problem with the actual gland like thyroid lumps or thyroiditis or other abnormalities.  Don't let the doctor fob you off with gargling with salty water.

Let me know how you get on.

I would have an ultrasound done on my neck.  A doctor may do a tsh level but theyare not real sound evidence of an under or overactive thyroid gland.  I had thyroid cancer and it seem as if doctors don't really listen to their patients. There is a lot of things but I would demand an ultrasound of the neck.   It is your body

Have your thyroid, parathyroid checked it shouldn't be painful. There are also a large amount of lymp nodes in the neck. Get it checked
