In brief: Time for re eval
Seems like a further evaluation is in order to see if these are separate but overlapping regional problems or really related to a cervical or neck diagnosis which now includes a good history and physical and then some imaging including x-rays and a mri.
Medication and/or pain management procedures may be indicated based on this workup.

In brief: Get good ortho exam
I think you need a comprehensive orthopedic exam. What is your diagnosis.
If you can localized the pain in a small area i would think that possibly with a couple of trigger point shots you could break the pain cycle then with the appropriate exercises for flexibility and strength you could hopefully get rid of this longterm is there an activity you are doing that keeps the pain from resolving?

In brief: Options.
I agree with both dr. Dowly and dr. Sider. Did want to mention that acupuncture may be more effective modality than acupressure for this pain.
