My question is could the strange numbness in his chin and bottom lip all be connected to his sinus and ear infection? I am so frightened for what I have read about "numb chin" on the internet . Thank you for your help.
But now I have another very severe pain flare up in the sinus, jaw, neck witih swollen lymph nodes again. And this time, the Amoxil is only working 60% on my symptoms and I've been taking it 7 days now. Now I will be finding a new dentist, probably at the University dental school in my city. But really the question comes, since those Xrays showed nothing before, what can this really be?
It would be best to visit your doctor for proper evaluation and management for the sinus pain as well as the anxiety. I hope this helps. Take care and keep us posted.
Since late on Thursday night, I've been experiencing intermittent pain in my jaw around my upper molar area. The pain radiates from my ear to right above my upper molar. It, also, extends to my lower jaw on the same side. I have had an ongoing problem with sinus congestion, but as of late, it seems to have gotten much better. However, in the past couple of days, I've become congested, again. Could this have anything to do with what's going on?
I have recurring pain in my jaws, mainly the left side. I have been having it in the day and at night. It starts right at my ear, and extends down toward windpipe.Lately it is little sharp pains lasting just a few seconds, but really bothersome. I have been reading that women may have that kind of symptom before a heart attack. I had Rheumatic fever as a young child, and have never been told I had any heart damage.
AT THE END OF APRIL, THE PAIN RETURNED. MY ORAL SURGEON CHECKED ME AGAIN, AS DID MY REGULAR DENTIST. IN ADDITION TO THE JAW PAIN, I WAS HAVING EAR PAIN, AND THE GUM AREA (WHERE THE TOOTH WAS) WAS VERY SORE. THE ORAL SURGEON REFERRED ME TO A GUM SPECIALIST WHO SAID MY GUM LOOKED OK, BUT I MIGHT NEED AN INPLANT. THE EAR PAIN CONTINUED, SO I WAS SENT TO AN ENT DOCTOR WHO SAID MY EAR LOOKED FINE.
What should I do about clogged ears, tightness in throat, sinus pressure and jaw pain?
I'll wake up one day and have my jaw joint hurting (especially when I open my mouth) and not much pain in my cheeks, and then the next day I won't have much pain in my jaw joint but a lot of pain in my cheeks. I've also had a lot of sensitivity to light, occasional feelings of pressure in my forehead, a little bit of soreness and popping in my ears, and occasional mild fevers (e.g. 99.2 or 99.3 degrees) with associated headache.
isn't until this afternoon to check for a sinus infection. Also dentist referred me to an oral surgeon, just in case, to check her root canal that was done 3 yrs. ago. I have given her ibprofin and a warm pack to rest on her jaw area because she said it kind of helps. what else can I do to make her comfortable?
i have had some terrible headachs in the past but now i am dealing with lower jaw pain that goes into my ear and my head. i thought the pain in my jaw was a toothach but i am not thinking thats what it is, so could you tell me if this is a ear infection or if it is just a sinus infection??
it sounds like you may have a nerve exposed causing the sensitivity and pain. In all cities there are emergency dental offices to help in times like this. Google "emergency dentists" in your city and go see one...you don't need an appt. It sounds like you have a virus and something going on with that back tooth, and I wouldn't wait on getting that looked at. Best wishes.
I started having pain in my jaw area and just in front of my right ear (feel like ear ache) about 2 weeks ago. The pain does not seem to have any pattern. There has also pain tingling pain in my teeth on the right side. Sometimes it is the top teeth and sometimes the bottom. Now I am having problems with my throat also. I feel like someone is holding tight on the right side of my throat. I have no idea what it is. It does seem to help when I hold cold water on that side of my mouth.
It sure sounds like a sinus infection. Is the mucus coming out colored or sticky in any way? Does it drip down the back of your throat and you can kind of taste it? I'd say because of the tooth pain too it's a sinus infection. You could try saline to help rinse out your nasal passages or go to your doctor. They might give you a Z-pack or some other antibiotic if they suspect bacterial infection.
I have a similar problem which is caused by a sinus infection in my maxillary sinus -- It is caused by an infection from a root canal -- it caused a communication from my mouth into my sinuses -- causing the infection. You need to take care of the tooth (filling/extraction/root canal) & then treat the sinus infection (anti-biotics) -- You should see a dentist about the tooth with the deep cavity to make sure you do not have an abcess.
Back in November I contracted what I thought was a cold, but turned into a severe sinus infection. Then, due to the circumstances, I also ended up with acute asthmatic bronchitis. However, the first visit to a doctor prompted him to believe I had strep throat. I was prescribed Amoxicillin, but I was unable to finish the dosage due to severe upset stomach seemingly caused by the drug. And, I was showing no signs of improvement.
Hi, combination of your ear pain and the jaw pain could be due to sinus congestion. There are many cases where individuals that suffering from sinus congestion also experience pressure in the ear, with earaches and even jaw pain. The earaches you are having may be an infection in the ear due to blocked sinuses. Other causes of aw pain can be due to infection of salivary gland like parotitis, infected foci, osteoporosis related jaw disarticulation or fracture.
For about a month now I have been having chronic neck pain and extreme upper jaw pain. The pain is also in my nose. It feels like pressure like when you have a sinus infection. I wake up in the morning with drainage in my throat then it goes away as the day proceeds. I have been to the doctor too many times. They did a mri on my head and everything was normal they also did a CT scan on my face and that was also normal.
It could be a sinus infection. I have asinus infection and I have terible ear and jaw pain.

Chris, I had what I thought was a sinus infection, with headache, for 9 months. Being a mom, I took lots of OTC meds and ignored it as long as possible. I was finally directed to the ER by my opthomologist, who saw my enlarged optic nerve heads. After a clear MRI (no tumor or sinusitis), I was diagnosed with Pseudotumor Cerebri. It is a disorder caused by increased intercranial pressure, that mimics many symptoms of tumor. It is treatable. But it isn't well known to many docs.
How do I know if this is a sinus infection - which I am prone to getting - or possibly a tooth abcess (the pain is mostly centered over one of the molars)? It does not hurt any more when I bite down. What does increase the pain is if I lay down on my left side any amount of time, whether it be to rest or sleep. Help???
They said it could be a sinus infection. I can believe the pain can possibly be that bad. It left. Now I have exactly the same thing on the other side of my mouth. It is in the lower jaw/ bone/tooth. They said it normally is in the upper teeth. Has anyone got any answers? I am 200 mile from a Dr This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/421800'>extreme tooth/jaw pain</a>.
No it is sun and the pain is only bad if I push directly don on that tooth--HOWEVER---my entire jaw hurts on that side now, I have pressure in my sinus on that side and i think I feel a bit of a lump (which is sensitive to pressure) on the bottom of my jaw directly under that tooth. I will go back in the morning but to get a second opinion will take a few days and a couple hundred mile round trip. Any thoughts? I am tired of the pain and even more tired of the pain medicine.
I woke up in the middle of the night with so much pain in my right cheek (in that sinus) that breathing in the room temperature AIR was intolerable. Thank you, again - I will look into an orofacial pain specialist if the dentist and ENT are not able to figure out what is WRONG with me!
I'm at a loss & need some guidance.I've had recurring sinus infections off over the past year & have been treated w/antibiotics regularly (most recently was a month ago or less). Also have quite a few cavities. Recently I experienced some pain in my upper jaw/face/ear & head & couldn't tell if it was tooth related as it was also in a sinus region (near left side of nose)& my nasal/ear passages have been swollen lately as well.
I am 35 years old, and had my wisdom teeth removed when I was 24. But that's not why I'm posting. My current problem started roughly 3 or 4 years ago. My upper right 1st molar had a filling in it...the filling broke, and the dentist I used to have drilled it out and put a very large filling in. Even since that fateful day, I've had problems on and off. For the first 6 months or so, the tooth was tender and my maxillary sinus would hurt.
for about a week now i am having wierd jaw pain. it starts in the back of my mouth on the lower left side. after about ten minutes it radiates all the way to the middle of my front teeth to the top of my head making the whole left side on my head throb with pain. i apparently sleep on that side of my face and it only takes about ten minutes of sleeping before i wake up in pain and what feels like restless leg syndrom becouse of the pain.
it could be something not as sinister, in a heart attack there is chest pain, lower jaw pain, dizziness, pain radiating down the armmainly left side, sometimes with heart disease there is a mucasey cough that lasts for months, are you healthy? have you checked your cholesterol? and bp?
