Costochondritis, pain above breast and travels to neck area, hurts in ear while swallowing, melatoxin no effect, ibuprofen

I have costochondritis . The pain is on left side above breast and travels to neck area and i have something going on in my ear. It hurts when i swallow too. Not like a sore throat . When food passes the area. The melatoxin he gave me doesnt work. Seems like otc of ibuprofen works best. Is it normal for the pain to travel n the neck and ear area?

Pulmonologist 's  Response
it feels that there is some sprain in the sternocleidomastoid muscle which runs from the neck to the back of the ear and hence the pain
Also a dental pain or an ear pain can be reffered to the neck
So please see an ENT physician and get the ear and neck checked for any other problem
