Pain on side of neck when drink hot beverages?

About two months ago I started an intense excercise program and thought I tweaked my neck. I had pain halfway down left side of neck when hot liquids or food hit tip of my tongue. Doctor thought tongue issue. Couple weeks later went away. Got a massage, sensation came back for a day, then went away again. Today saw chiropractor b/c neck stiff again and after he was done I bought a coffee. Guess what? Pain was back. Any idea what this could be? How to cure?

Have you seen a dentist lately? It could be a problem with the jaw bones pressing on a nerve and the heat from the coffee makes it worse. Or even a tooth that's getting an absess. Pain from the tooth and jaw areas seem to radiate elsewhere.

It's probably something else, but I think it would be well worth your time to have a dentist look at it. Maybe some Xrays would be helpful.

Yes, I in fact had a recent tooth problem, but not related and teeth look and feel fine.

It's been a while since your post, but I just wanted to let you know that I have the same symptoms. It started about a week or so ago. I was diagnosed (MRI) with a bulging disc in my neck in August of 2009. Couple of months ago, I started working out again.....

Please let me know if you have any additional information since your post! Thanks!

You need a good dentist as this is problem of your tooth.
reason being as nerves of tooth are connected with your brain and neck so they are automatically affecting your neck.

My mom has trigemilan nearalgia,

she has pain in her throat / neck area with hot, cold, etc foods. Could this be your problem too?
