Pain in Neck

I have started taking singing classes.  My right side of the neck, outside part just inside the skin, muscular part is paining. What should I do?  Take some rest or get myself checked?

Melissa Kim M.S., CCC-SLP replies...
Although muscular pain in the neck or throat area after singing is often related to improper technique / excessive strain, it certainly wouldn't hurt to be evaluated by an Ear, Nose, and Throat physician to determine if there are any other contributing factors to your symptoms.

Good luck!
