TMJ: 30's person with jaw, neck and headache pain on right side might have temporal mandibular joint disorder. A dental specialist is good person to diagnose. In my opinion, chronic head tilt to one side can arouse chronic muscle spasm of masseter muscle leading to these symptoms. Ergonomic evaluation might be in order.

Facial pain: Tmj or temporomandibular joint dysfunction, may be responsible for your pain. Please see your physician and or dentist to rule out other possibilities- tumors, abscessed tooth, sinus infection etc.
