Need more info: Getting a clear diagnosis for pain like that requires more information and a careful physical examination. This isn't the place. If the ENT didn't come up with anything and the CT didn't reveal anything, you need someone to review your history about the pain, the rest of your medical history, and to do an exam to try to see what is generating the pain. You should see a neurologist or physiatrist
