10 yr old complaining of tightness around his neck and feelling of something in his throat

for several weeks now, my ten yr old has complained that he feels like something is around his neck and that it feels like something is stuck in his throat. he constantly pulls his shirt collar away from his neck and won't touch his neck or let me. He says it doesn't hurt, he just doesn't want anyone to touch his neck. trip to the doctor or will they think I'm over reacting? He does say it's hard to breath sometimes when I ask, but most of the time he's active and seems fine.
