Trouble swallowing?

I tend to feel like my throat muscles are very tight or as if they freeze when I try to swallow. I really noticed it last night when I would bend my head forward as if the throat muscles were contracting or cramping. It was weird, because it felt like my throat in general was tighten and I felt pressure like when you raise in altitude.

Maybe tight muscles? Anyone experience this? Last night they seemed to be better when I stretched out my neck a bit. I assume this is muscular and not neurological. Of course, my mind starts thinking about stroke. Could any of the swallowing or tight neck muscle be attributed to neck adjustments? Maybe I should be sure to stretch the neck muscles after the chiropractor visit.

Weird thing is, I have had odd swallowing issues for months now...where it feels like something is getting hung up or stuck in my throat.
