Possibly jaw issue: People with a temporomandibular joint problem may experience similar symptoms as you . This may be triggered by stress and anxiety which you apparently are experiencing. Your were right in consulting an ENT but i suggest that you check with your dentist as well especially if you tend to grind your teeth at night. If the dentist cannot find anything wrong, see another ENT for a 2nd opinion.
