Unexplained pain and muscle cramping following radiation and surgery on neck

I am a 21 year old female.  On January of '09 it was discovered that the lump on my neck was a mucoepidermoid carcinoma.  I had two surgeries and radiation on the area.  Now, almost a year after my radiation ended, my neck muscles are in constant spasm on the side where all the work was done, particularly right in the front.  It causes a lot of pain.  My doctor is searching for a cause, and more specifically, a solution, but he hasn't seen anything as extreme as mine before.

I'm sorry - I realized that I failed to say it was salivary gland cancer.

I really need to think this out more thoroughly.  This pain started back in April and has gotten worse.  Muscle relaxants (Baclofen) helped for a little bit, but eventually failed to help anymore.  Now I am on a combination of Baclofen and Oxycodone.
