Feeling something move in the Neck

User Profile
For the past two weeks I've had a feeling of something in my neck. Just recently I was working out and now the feeling has shifted from the right of my neck to the left of my neck. I don't understand what this is. It looks like if I press on the spot where I feel it it shifts sides. I went to the doctor about a week and a half ago, he checked me out and he said that he believes it's nothing serious, but this is freaking me out. He prescribed Omoprazole 20MG #30, but it doesn't seem like it is helping. How can something move in my neck like that, and what is it?

According to your symptoms (“feeling something moving in your neck”), you may be experiencing some anxiety because no organic disease acts like that. I don’t know why your doctor prescribed Omeprazole. It is a proton pump inhibitor used for decreasing stomach acidity. You can visit an ENT specialist to check your throat and neck. If everything is ok, you might consider going to a mental health professional to identify possible psycho-somatic connections.
