Musculoskeletal: 21 yo female with constant head, neck and jaw pain likely has chronic muscle spasm in cervical region, with possible tension muscle headache and/or TMJ. Osteopth is best doctor to evaluate, especially for chronically tilted head and crossed muscle syndrome in the superior trapezium. Evaluation by seasoned Physical Therapist might be useful.
