Common Questions and Answers about Jaw pain after exercise

jaw-pain

A few minutes after starting up, I'd notice pain in my jaw. If I kept going, sometimes the pain would subside eventually (perhaps after I found my pace?). I went to a cardiologist who was at first unconcerned. He did an EKG and my blood pressure was fine. I then went for a stress test and an echocardiogram. I think the echo was fine but the stress test was "positive." He then recommended a nuclear stress test, which also came up positive.
He is in anxiety hell right now, it comes and goes and it comes and goes when he gets jaw/upper chest pain primarily. Though he wakes up shaking sometimes and denies it. He was on .5 xanax XR for 5 months, it helped but he is very worried about becoming addicted or just needing it. So, he weened himself off of it. Had about 2 really good weeks after it was out of his system, then the physical symptoms came back... which ramp the anxiety up. He doesn't want to die (who does?
excellent sprinter, but unable to run for more than 4 minutes since I was 10. Jaw, neck, tongue pain, dizziness, nauesa starts 3 minutes after beginning to run. same thing for the last 12 years. I didn't think it was weird, but finally decided it was a problem this year. I just hate not being able to excercise like everybody else. Resting ekg normal, bp normal, constant resting tachycardia ~100-110. Thyroid normal. My cardiologist did a stress test today, and I feel totally scammed.
You say you have good teeth, then does your jaw click when you bite or chew? You may have TMJ, which can cause nasty jaw pain. I have it. Muscle relaxers are usually the best treatment and massage of the jaw muscles outside of the jaw under your ears. Also, place your tongue at the bottom of your mouth flat. Try to pin the tip of your tongue to your bottom teeth. Then try to open your mouth straight without your jaw popping out of place.
My Dr. said it is still my anemia, even after all that iron. I can use an exercise bike for 45 min and feel fine. I've noticed that my starting heart rate is getting lower, which I thought was because I was less anemic.
I have been having pretty uncomfortable pain in my jaw and neck after running coupled with coughing and scratchy throat. I plan to go to the doctor to see if I have exercise induced asthma. I hope you went to the doctor. Those are some very serious side effects you are having!
At the time of the EKG, I didn't have that episode I had a couple days ago (sweating, pressure in chest, and trouble breathing) Is that why the EKG came back normal because at the time I didn't have these symptoms; just chest and jaw pain. I still have chest and jaw pain now. I feel lightheaded sometimes also. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I notice my neck and jaw muscles get so tense that I constantly have to remind myself to let go and relax for days at a time. I tend to clamp down on my teeth a lot and will sometimes give myself a headache. I also stop having an interest in food. Do you think this may signal my mania starting? Im kind of guessing it does, but just wanted some others opinions. Thanks.
I'm trying to find out why I get this burning pain just below my jaw, in line with my ears when I exercise or exert myself in the cold air. I tried keeping the area warm by using a hat, scarf, breathing through my nose and through the scarf, but it only seems to help a little bit. It's a gradual onset and gets to the point where it travels along my jaw and then into my teeth. I like the cold weather activities and this kind of puts a damper on them. Has anybody got any ideas?
------------------------------------------------- Oct. 2008: Post-exercise pain in right side rib area.

Both episodes were resolved after I took 25mg of Metoprolol and 1/2 of the smallest dose of ativan. Both have also included jaw pain and pain between my shoulder blades with my heart "Jumping" out of my chest. I have taken betablockers for a short time in the past, but they have made me feel awful. I have also taken digitalis, which made me feel terrible as well. Holter moniter tests prove inconclusive. Stress tests are negative. My EKG shows a slight irregularity on the t-wave.
The pulsing vein at the temple could be due to high BP, stress and anxiety, clot in veins, deep vein thrombosis and TMJ. Since the symptoms worsen after eating and exercise (where probably you are clenching your jaw) possibility of TMJ should be looked into. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Also, early in the morning when I'm still in bed, I get a little jaw or lower teeth pain and then after I get up, everything goes back to normal. I'm lost and don't know what it is that's causing these episodes. Any ideas?
The chest pain has been scary, since it accompanies jaw and arm pain which is worse during exercise. Last year I had a stress echo and stress test, both negative. I just had a CT coronary angiogram which came back totally normal. Cardiologist said there was no plaque and no calcification - excellent heart health. I still have the jaw/arm and sometimes chest pain upon exercise, though it is there during other times too.
Almost a year ago I started having TMJ pain and after a few weeks I went to the orthodontist and he gave me a splint. The splint didn't seem to work and seemed to have made things worse after 4-5 months of readjustments so I stopped using it. I started seeing a chiropractor in at the beginning of this year and after a few months, that didn't seemed to take care of my off and on TMJ pain. Suddenly after a couple months going to the chiropractor, my wrist and arm area started to hurt also.
But then after a few months I had extremely severe pain form between the tooth and my maxillary sinus on that side, and then pain back to my jaw, and below my jaw down my neck with swollen lymph nodes. Plus when I bite down that tooth and only that tooth hurts. Well, the dentist took new bite wing X-rays and didn't see an abscess or anything and gave me Amoxil which completely elminated the severe pain in 5 days...
I then began to experience slight jaw pain in the area below the ear. Hurts when I chew. Internist xrayed my jaw to rule out TMJ, and that came back negative. He has no other suggestions. I went for about 1 1/2 weeks until this past Monday, with no feeling of fullness or anything. The slight jaw pain was still present. On Monday, it begun to feel not normal again. I don't necessarily have ear fullness, but the area behind my ears near the jaw feels odd inside.
Some chiroprators will press on a ligament or muscle (I think that is what it is!) behind the teeth between the jaws way in the back. That has helped me. Also, I bet we all do big yawns now and then--I open my mouth very wide and stretch a bit farther for a moment when the TMJ tension is too high. Accupressure w/ a thumb just above the back jawbone in front of the ear and below the cheek bone feels good.
After my nuclear stress test came back equivocal my doctor said he would only order more tests if I developed classic angina symptoms --- pain or pressure consistently with exercise, emotion, and after eating. I don't know if this qualifies. Yesterday I was feeling well for the first time in a few weeks and decided to go for a brisk walk on a hilly trail. The park is about 30 minutes away by car. I started getting vague chest pains along the way driving.
Do you have lyme? How ill are you? How effective has treatmtent been? Yes it will make it worse. Do you get more fatigued and do not recover well? I had terrible face and neck pain; activity increased it. All my symptoms that kicked in at different stages were worse with exercise and general activity. One lyme dr. said do not have these patients do aerobic exercise as they are literally starved for oxygen. I believe it.
Another possibility could be the neck problems and pain may appear due to irritation in the cervical (neck) spine because the nerves that supply the back of the head start in the upper cervical spine. Mostly, this kind of head pain aggravates after turning head and typically occurs in patients with previous neck injuries and in patients with marked arthritis of the upper cervical spine.
He also says his jaw hurts sometimes during exercise. He also gets the arm and jaw pain when stressed, but it comes and goes very fast he tells me. Both arms, mainly the right and along his left jawline. He says he has absolutely NO chest pain with this, and I know he pushes it hard. I've seen him in spin class and on the stairclimber. His cholesterol is a tad high but has come down with medication.
after 2 months of acute tonsillitis and antibiotic treatments I am still the same. Feels like something is in my throat every time I swallow, terrible jaw pain, unusual pain, sensation in tongue ear ache...all on the left side! Unbelievable! Have another physical Dr. Appointment on September 12..... Will update then....how is your feeling now?
I've also been to dinners and had to leave early or go outside to lay down in my car. I understand that I may get headaches after exercise but I thought the surgery would have at least helped with every day life. I have a specialist appointment tomorrow - I have my fingers crossed!
Yes, I had chest and jaw pain. The ekg was normal but my heart enzymes shot up. They think it may have been a spasm of artery because echo and heart cath showed no blockage and heart performing normally.
I have been on the stomach medication for approximately 10 days and still experiencing the same chest discomfort and jaw pain. Absolutely nothing has changed, so needless to say I am still worried. Is there a test that they can do to check to see if maybe there is a problem with my carotid artery that may be causing the symptons? I would very much appreciated your thoughts regarding what may or may not be going on.
when is it safe to go back to my exercise program, which consists of a very intense water aerobic exercise class? I was hospitalized after having a surgery at a large teaching hospital, and it was the conclusion of all docs that the rabdo came about because of a reaction to succynilcholine. I had rhabdo 5 years ago after a reaction to remicade, it followed the same course, but I think I recovered a bit quicker the last time.
Saturday morning when i woke up my whole left cheek and jaw were swollen pretty big. I went to the ER and was given penicillin vk 500. It's been 4 days and its barely gone down. Is this normal? My tooth that has the abcsess is broken down to the gum, if that could be why. What would i need to get done to fix this and does anyone know about the price it would cost with no insurence? Also do dentists office's set up payment plans?
