Complex : The head and neck is exquisitely intricate. Could be anything from an ear or upper respiratory infection to TMJ syndrome to cancer in a smoker. Could be a dental problem too. If worsening need an ENT doc to examine you, especially if a smoker. Motrin can help relieve symptoms. But if worse after the drug wears off need to see a doc.
