I am sorry, but you said you did not consult a doctor for your problem?
not for neck
can this be related?
It may or may not be related.
The area that you described seem to be temporomandibular joint to me.
This joint is least affected with position. However strong action of the mouth such as biting a hard object,
those who have teeth grinding habit develop this sort of ache.
i did a google, area is right
Rarely, this pain may be referred ache where the pathology is in the tonsil/throat or the ear.
Without a detailed physical examination, it is difficult to predict the cause
especially when you have no associated complaints.
Therefore I suggest you see a doctor (dentist)
and confirm the cause of ache.
somebody told me, it may be related to heart
can it be?
nope, it isnt troublin
I do not suspect heart ailment when you have no other associated symptoms.
More over you did not describe a severe pain
so do not be worried.
yes... it is more of an uneasiness than pain
Do you have any questions?
that's it, thanks
have a good evening
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
