I have been experiencing pain for some time (around 8 months) on the right side of the face. It started originally from just under the base of the ear and a little in the throat and has extended now to inside of mouth, jaws and head and has started in the left ear too.
Since this Monday, the pain has become pretty extreme. I took Dolo to alleviate the pain but to jo avail.
Plea the advise..

I can understand your concern.
You need to get it checked out by a ENT specialist.
It could be TMJ sybdrome or trigeminal neuralgia.
Consult a ENT specialist in person as soon as possible for further evaluation and management.
