throat pain in right side

Hello all,

For last 2 months , I am facing a pain in rightside of my throat - it pains in my right ear also as well. I live in Japan and visited all nearby ENT doctors. Scope thru nose some spoonlike instruments, checking thru nose - all say no infection, no tumor, no cancer. But the pain comes and goes.

It has something to do with some kind of food - grapefruit juice starts the pain whereas cold water or cold coffee does not. Solid food may or may not start - kind of unpredictable but sickening. Sometime, even without any food, it has a subdued pain .

I do have a muscle pain in my right shoulder and one doctor pushes my right and left neck and pain is more in the right side. He said it is due to muscle pain - not to worry, has given me some rusty color liquid to gurle with in warm water.

I can imagine the muscle pain being the cause, but what confues me why it happens with some kind of food and not for others. In fact, I have seen 3 ENT all doing the same scoping coming out with nothing - they tell me to ignore this pain:)

I am worried about larynx cancer and I have no clue what to do.

Can somebody give me some direction please?

Thank you.
