Exclamation HELP-Extremely PAINFUL CRAMPS' in front of NECK/THROAT?

I am getting such bad neck cramps,

it happens almost daily anyway when I yawn or just out of nowhere, I get an extreme painful "cramp" almost like a 'charlie horse' in my neck that lasts for 20 or 30 seconds and hurts so bad that have to close my mouth and cant talk at all, sometimes it happens when i will open my mouth wide to brush my teeth, and will and also when i touch my neck while the spasm is going on, it feels very hard and moves from one one side of my neck to the center of my neck. its ahorrendous pain that doesn't lat a long time but happens often.

Any idea why it is happening and what could it be? can a chiropractor help this pain?

I thought it was TMJ but I have no problem with my jaw or have any symptoms of TMJ also since the cramps are on my neckI doubt its TMJ

Just read your post and wondered if you looked into glossopharyngeal neuraglia or trigeminal neuralgia. I understand it is hard to diagnose, but extremely painful. It has something to due with the nerves in your neck being compressed. Anyway, a neurologist can help you. I hope you have already found relief.
