Muscle Under The Chin Hurts
Tonight, the muscles under my chin sometimes feel painful when swallowing or contracting
Hello Aditya, Thank you for the question.
Must be ascertained first whether the pain when swallowing is the throat or indeed the muscles under your chin because in general the cause of pain when swallowing is due to a sore throat. In this case, the cause is strep throat, tonsillitis, and acid reflux disease. However, if the pain is the front of the neck muscles then the cause is usually muscle pain / muscle tension usually due to poor posture such as when sleeping, sitting, or bending.
There are some initial treatments that you can do:
multiply water consumption
get enough rest for 7-9 hours every day
Avoid exposure to dust and other air pollution
avoid consuming spicy, sour, oily foods and avoid consuming caffeinated or fizzy drinks
do a warm compress on the sore neck regularly; You can also try applying warm balm to the neck
improve body position when sleeping, sitting, bending
if the muscle pain is very annoying, please try taking paracetamol according to the rules of use on the drug packaging
If these symptoms do not improve at all within 2 weeks, please consult with your nearest GP so that you can do a direct examination to ascertain the cause before being given the right medicine.
I hope this helps
