Two years ago I actually cracked my left molar causing an abscess
, so I needed to have it removed. I didn't get an implant because I didn't, and still don't, have insurance and procrastinated ever since.
About 4 months ago, I noticed popping in my ears. A bit later on, an intermittent tautness in my throat - minor symptoms but I think they're connected. (Also, the right side of my jaw has clicked for years.)
About 3 weeks ago I awoke with a painful sensation in my jaw.
