Thanks for posting your query.
The pain that you have described is likely to be due to a muscle pull or sprain. Taking the muscle relaxant- cyclobenzaprine should be helpful. You can also do a hot fomentation in the area and apply a local analgesic gel for a better relief. Do take a mild pain killer like acetaminophen also with meals for a better effect.
In case the pain is persistent for more than 3 days then do consult your physician for physical examination and stronger pain killers and muscle relaxants.

I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.

I am also argophobic, ocd, I take cybalta and worry. I have a fear of death when I have these spells as I call them it makes me think I am having a heart attack, I know these spells ain't a panic attack, I can't understand why my jaw and ear hurts, I was just laying here on bed and got pain in shoulder bladder and it /pain came around to the bottom of my mouth like I was choking, I got scared. Thank you I goona take a advil pill. YYYY@YYYY

Thanks for writing again.
The mild pain killer or the muscle relaxant are not likely to interact with cymbalata. The muscle spasm can be aggravated by anxiety. Taking Advil will also help.
Hope my answer is helpful.
