Severe illness, chronic sore throat, have jaw pain, cervical spondylosis. Finished nexium HP. Tried cider vinegar gargles. Further?

After 12months of severe illness, although well now I have been left with chronic sore throat & jaw, the pain is extremely debilitating. I have seen 2 ENT doctors & have been told it was viral by the first, the second did blood test,scan with injection which showed non specific cervical nodes & cervical spondylosis, Mild forward slip of c4 on c5. I also proved positive with a breath test for which i have just finished Nexium HP7, which were of no help. I do now suffer from Gord. I had work done on my teeth just incase they were the cause. I take over the counter medications , mouthwashes, lozengers, have tried chilli in orange juice, cidar vinegar gargles. I dont know what else I can do. your help would be appreciated

Thanks for writing to us.
Jaw pain may be due to-
Dislocation of TMJ.
Wide opening of mouth.
Impacted wisdom teeth.
Tmj inflammation.
I would advice you to get a thorough clinical evaluation done by a dentist.
Maintain oral hygiene well.
Avoid mouth opening too widely.
Take medicines as per prescription of dentist.
Please do visit an ENT specialist regarding your other concerns.
Take care.
