Common Questions and Answers about Jaw pain left neck pain


Avatar_n_tn I'm having occasional trouble with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> and arm. It comes and goes. I've had a CT of my head done (clean) as well as an MRI of my brain area and neck (both clean). The doctor who ordered the MRI gave me another doctor's name if the problems continued. I don't know whether I've pinched a nerve somewhere or having some sort of circulatory problems.
Avatar_f_tn It went overt shoulder down the back of my arm. At the same time it shot up my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> side wrapped around the back on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> and settled in my upper jaw joint in front of my right ear. That hurt! The spot by my ear in the jaw joint was horrible. I did have mild sweating. Odd thing was I was talking when it happened stopped mid sentence and my husband said I was pale I sat in chair with a thud. I looked stunned he said. I tried to get my husband to take me to ER or call 911.

Avatar_n_tn I've seen a cardiologist (well, several) and I still continue to have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> arm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>, like a weakness and also a tightening in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span>. Sometimes it aches so bad I can't think straight. But, since I've had a number of cardiac tests that have come back normal, I try to tell myself it isn't heart related. If you haven't seen a doctor for it, it is probably wise (just in case) to do so. Good luck.
Avatar_n_tn I have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> joint of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> for years now. As far as I can remember I have not been knocked in that area. The area of pain can stretch from the lower jaw area right up to my ear and can even give me neck pain. It causes pain when I open my mouth wide and always feels like the bones are 'clicking' and 'clunking' out of place. I have had phisio on the joint but that is only a stretch of the muscle and the pan is always present.
659608_tn?1318292966 It is however more than possible that you could have an infection in your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span>, say, from an impacted or infected wisdom tooth. Tooth <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> can often make the ear and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> hurt as well (just as an ear infection can make the teeth hurt...). There is also the possibility that there is nothing wrong with you dentally either and you are suffering from neuralgic pain.
1947337_tn?1331427490 Like a really bad toothache but the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> is on the whole <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span>, top and bottom. This has happened 2 or 3 times in the past week and will last several hours along with pain going down my neck and behind my ear.
Avatar_n_tn Question #1:If angina presents as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> with no chest <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>, what, typically, is the nature of the pain? Diffuse? One-sided? Squeezing? including the neck too? I have a mild discomfort only in one particular quarter size area of my jaw, just to the left of my chin that comes and goes. It can last a few minutes or a couple hours. Exertion does seem to bring it on, but I also sometimes have it at rest with a heart rate about 75.
Avatar_f_tn I woke up in excruciating <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> all along my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span>, in my ear, and down my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>. It felt like I had been choked. It was painful to the touch and along my throat had a strange soft swelling. The pain also radiated up under my eye to my nose on that side. I was going to call the doctor but decided to just go to bed. I stayed there all day. Just touching the skin on my neck hurt. By Sunday, the pain was much lessened and on Monday felt nearly gone. Yesterday was not bad either.
Avatar_n_tn I am having a problem with my left ear/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> area. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> will start gradually but increase over time. It casuses my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> to feel tight and I have terrific pain in my ear. It hurts to turn my head to the right (keep in mind it is my left ear that hurts) and touching my ear causes near vomit inducing pain. There is a spot just below my ear that if I massage it, the pain subsides for a minute or two and then starts back up.
Avatar_m_tn What I have is actually in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span>. the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> hurts toward the side (main muscle/tendon going down from the jaw to the shoulder, and under my jaw, from what I can tell is inside my jaw. there are ridges on my jaw towards my chin that hurt, and also the space in between my jaw hurts. Don't know if it is glandular or tmj related. odd stuff. Cannot see my doc until next Thursday. anything that I can do?
Avatar_n_tn I am in the night shift and i also had a swollen lymph node in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span>-lower-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span>-inbetween-the-ear portion and it's also giving me a piercing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>. the lymph is swollen because according to the doctor's diagnosis i have an allergic rhinities and my "maximus", (i don't really know what is the name) ---- it's on the inside-left-nose is inflamed because of allergy.
Avatar_f_tn Hi For about 3 months my neck hurts, especially when i try to tilt my head back or down to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span>. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> radiates to my ear and up the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> side of my head. I cant sleep on my right side , the pain is so intense. Should i see someone for this?
Avatar_f_tn Had an MRI and they found a mass between my left ear and jaw......
Avatar_m_tn I have chest,<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>,<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> and head <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> side also the top side of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> shoulder. I have 4 stents in my heart and I had two mini stokes in 2007. Right now my blood presure on the left side is 106/59 and pulse of 46 Could someone tell me what is going on?
Avatar_n_tn I was in an accident 10/14/09. I have been suffering from right-sided <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>, shoulder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>, headaches, and right arm pain/numbness. Family doctor diagnosed me with a sprain/strain. pain continued and was sent for an MRI (12/09). MRI showed: early spur formation and disc protrusion C5-C6 on left with mild stenosis of central canal. left-sided protrusion at C6-C7 with narrowing of the left neuroforamen. Long story, short.. Given many medications to try and Physical therapy.
Avatar_n_tn I am a 39-year-old female, and I have been having terrible <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> anterior <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> for about 1 month. The pain seems to be close to my carotid artery and runs along the trachea. My left jaw and ear also hurt. I have been to an internal medicine and ENT doctor, and I have had an MRI and CT scan of my neck, and I was told that everything appears normal. The ENT doctor said my lymph nodes are swollen, but the MRI was normal. My thyroid is not swollen and TSH and free T4 levels are fine.
Avatar_f_tn I have been wearing bite guard for last year and it got better but started hurting again this week really bad and having spasms in jaw and now my neck is killing me on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> side. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> is going up the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> side of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> and down <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> shoulder into arm. Have not had chance to go to doctor yet but am wondering if anyone with cervical disc problems has ever had it to affect temple and jaw area of face??? Am thinking maybe this isn't TMJ at all....
Avatar_f_tn It's only on the left side. A few hours ago I started having severe, constant <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span>/teeth. Also, on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> side. I don't know if it is related. Any ideas on what's going on? Should I see a doctor? I have tried heat and throat losangers, neither helped.
Avatar_n_tn I have extreme headaches on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> side of my head along with extreme discomfort and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in the skull, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span>, neck, shoulders. The left side of my shoulder, neck, face, and even cranium is swollen and has been getting more and more swollen over the years. I do not know if it's a domino effect from the bottom (feet, lower back, or shoulder) to the top (jaw and skull) or from the top to the bottom, or a bunch of separate problems.
Avatar_f_tn -every morning my jaw clicks when i open my mouth cause its been shut for so long (never had to do this before) -every time i eat i get a sharp, grating like feel in the top of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> bone (by the ear <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> side only) Also in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> ive got a tender <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> when ever its touched ever since, plus this is also on the left hand side Any idea whats up?
Avatar_n_tn I woke up wth <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in my lower <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> gums/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span>. As the day went on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> has worsened and spread to my neck (more internal than external muscle), chest (middle, upper chest-not so much by the heart) through to my back. I had chest, back and right jaw pain a few weeks ago (a sharper pin in he back than I'm feeling now) and had several EKG's, a stress test, and a echo. I have a histoy of acid reflux, but antacids are not helping. Cold water doesn't seem to be helping either. Any suggestions?
Avatar_f_tn My right eye has developed double vision in low light (my optomitrist said this is because my pupil gets larger than previous lasor surgery flap at night) Three weeks ago I started getting constant <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in the upper back part of the right side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> and along the side of the right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> (by the bg arteries) and even under my right lower jaw. I have no swollen glands but constant fullness, pressure and discomfort.
Avatar_f_tn I am a LimboLander with an uncomfortable new symptom--or maybe not a symptom?? I have a stiff neck--and not the kind that you get after you sleep weird--and not like something is "out." It's just this line of pain from my neck dowm my right arm--and up to my jaw--I feel stupid asking because maybe it's just a stiff neck--but I've never had pain like this before and was just wondering if this sounds like something to add to my log of sx or if it seems unrelated.
Avatar_n_tn But then after a few months I had extremely severe pain form between the tooth and my maxillary sinus on that side, and then <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> back to my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span>, and below my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> down my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> 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...
Avatar_m_tn I seem to only feel <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in the right side and only when laying down on my right side and only when swallowing. Have seen a ENT and was told throat looked fine. I am thinking it could be an artery.
621386_tn?1221536083 After 7 months of symptoms similar to yours - I am still not sure if <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> problems cause the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> (and facial <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> and ear <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> lower back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>) or if TMJ disorder causes it all. What is helping: -Wearing a neck brace (inexpensive - get it at the pharmacy) seems to help. Espcially at the end of the day when my neck is tired. -Sleeping on my back. I used to sleep on my stomach - arms and lega akimbo. I think this put a lot of pressure on my neck and jaw.
