I was caught off guard and the board was in front of me horizontally then a rush of white water came and the edge of my surfboard went up and hit me right on the neck. This happened this morning at around 9 a.m. I got hit directly on the area of my adam's apple and when I got hit, I could still breathe fine but I was just more shocked and the pain was bearable. It hurts to talk or swallow. It's more of a discomfort than pain. Im going to say that the pain out of 10 is at least a 4. The pain doesn't feel anything like a sore throat, it feels more like my neck is physically sore like how your muscles feel when it's sore. When I try to stretch my neck in all directions there is a slight pain. I touch my neck to see where it hurts the most and it's my adam's apple. My voice is still the same, just a little raspy like how it is when you need to clear your throat. I just can't talk really loud or high because it hurts. I don't know if I should go to the ER or just wait it out and take pain killers. I haven't taken any pain killers because I wanted to see if it would get better.

You really SHOULD have gone to the emergency room when this happened.

I'll go with Punkey on this one. Hyoid bone, larynx, all stuff you want to keep in good shape if you plan on continued breathing
