I have had a lot of pain on the right side of my face, head, ear and neck for many years. A physiotherapist used to use trigger therapy to try to disperse muscle spasms but I don't go anymore as I can't afford it. I now try to treat myself, which is a bit hit and miss, but sometimes brings shortlived relief. The last few months the pain in my neck, especially under my ear, has intensified to a very deep pain, and it is so bad I can barely stand to keep the pressure on it. If I manage to brave it out and maintain the pressure, it does improve eventually. But not for long. Also, recently I've noticed that when I swallow, there seems to be a kind of 'clicking' in my throat on the right side at the front, which is very uncomfortable. I seem to be forever jabbing at my muscle knots to try and ease the pain. Anyone have any similar experiences?
