Hi all,
I am new to this forum.I have pain below the angle of mandible on right side & this pain goes up to whole right side of head & neck & sometimes upper back too(right side).Pain never crosses over to involve left side of head.it just stops right in the middle of head.Also, there is a slight swelling on right side of face.It has been going on for 1 year & 3 months.

The pain is intermittent.Sometimes it is gone for months together & when it's here, it's stay for days.I have difficulty in opening mouth to its full extent,sometimes pain during eating.Most of the times it is a dull pain with feeling if pressure.Sometimes I even have a sharp shooting pain going up to the head in temporal bone area(above the ear)
I have been through xray, scan & doctor doesnot feel the need for MRI.
There have been countless visits to physician & 2 to ENT doctor, who fails to find anything.
Help me out...if someone had similar pain.
