hi there. for 2 weeks now i have right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. it lasts all day long but it is worse in the morning.first it hurts to yawn but after 2-3 hours it hurts to chew. also while experiencing jaw pain, my right ear tends to hurt. i had a history of grinding my teeth in my sleep when i was younger but i don't think i do it anymore or at least my boyfriend hasn't noticed it and we are sleeping together. can it be anything serious?
Took 2nd shot this past Wednesday. Have actually had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> off and on but really thought it was a dental problem but am thinking more along the lines of Sx now because it is in both jaws. I emailed my doctor earlier today. Has anyone else had jaw pain. Both jaws have been effected and right now it is throbbing a bit. I emailed to ask my doctor if I should go and see a dentist anyway even though it may be due to the drugs.
I have been waking in the morning, and found that while sleeping I have been clenching my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> to the point that I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my temples. Does anyone else struggle with this? I am concerned that my teeth are shiting because of the force of the bite.
for about a week now i am having wierd <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. 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.
I had my wisdom teeth (all of them, and they all were impacted) removed in March. Since then, I have experienced the same kind of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> I had before the surgery. It's almost as if the teeth were never removed. It's not a consistent pain, but it comes and goes for at least a few days out of every week. It's mostly just annoying, but it can get pretty severe and it is often accompanied by earaches and headaches.
I am unable to open my mouth more than a certain extend, not only because the pain is terrible, but also because it justs doesn't open. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> is coupled with ear <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> and sometimes I feel <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> when I am chewing also. I visited a dentist who reached the conclusion (after taking an xray) that my wisdom tooth MAY be the reason of all this, because it has an abnormal direction, pushing the other teeth.
About 2 weeks ago however it became EXTREMLY sore, not only when opening my mouth but now just at a relaxed position...the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> is constant chewing, talking, opening, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sleeping</span>, walking, eating, swimming...ALL THE TIME!! my ear on the side of which my jaw is hurting is now also contributing to the pain, it feels like something is pushing on my tragus and deep down into my ear!!........
Since early hours this morning ive had really bad Tooth and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> then the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> went to the bottom of my jaw and the top of my head then it stopped then I had a bad jaw and earache then that stopped then I had a pain on the top bit of my nose to my head and so on, I got told that jaw pain in pregnancy but ive never met anyone who has had It, is this Normal it not becuse im in alot of pain and paracetamol never works!!
I have a strange sensation along my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> it is like a strong pulse and dull <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. It moves around, along the top of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span>, underneath the jaw. Comes and goes. I had this about 6 years ago for a few weeks, then it went away, it came back about a month ago, once again lasted a week then left. Both these times I was under stress/anxiety and I put it down to that. This time, it has come back again, but I am not stressed or worried, So I have no idea what it is.
At the same time it shot up my neck on left side wrapped around the back on my neck and settled in my upper <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> joint in front of my right ear. That hurt! The spot by my ear in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> 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.
i'm trying to massage my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> lightly as i think one of my biggest issues is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sleeping</span>, and clenching my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> while I sleep (which also affects my ears). i'm also going to the chiropractor to help with my neck... and about to schedule a dentist appointment so they can maybe take an xray, and see whther my jaw is misaligned. anyway, some areas for you to consider and check ;-) good luck, and don't give up!
Maybe your grinding your teeth when <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sleeping</span>? My mom would complain about her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> hurting/sore frequently, then I caught her grinding her teeth while napping...
Over the course of a few weeks the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> started to subside and my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> began to relax... Heat packs on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> to soothe the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>... He also suggested certain exercises to strengthen my neck and back muscles because they were weak from all the tension... I also did acupuncture... It also helped to calm and relax my muscles... Good luck!
its sleep paralysis, i am narcoleptic and this hapeens to me 2-3 times a day. its a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in the butt. Its your R.E.M. sleep state, goes into full dream mode, instead of allowing your body to normally relax and fall asleep. I wake after a 10 minute ordeal and feel ill and my eyelids are red and so is my chest. I am weak and it takes me a few minutes to get with it. Sometimes then i go back to sleep for a nice nap. My mother had this when she was younger but she isnt narcoleptic.
For the past 20 years, this has not been a major problem, but in the past 6 months, I've experienced increasing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> and tension during sleep. I've tried a night guard, and I've tried different stretches and neck exercises, but I am unable to find a neutral resting position for my tongue and jaw that I can maintain while sleeping. Are there any exercises recommended? Any therapists that specialize in this odd problem? Thanks for any advice.
Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> can be due to TMJ and this causes earache, and tension in jaw with cracking sounds and even headaches. The other thing that you should look at is sleep disorders. Especially since your routine is now different, you may not have been able to set the sleep pattern according to it and hence not able to get the requisite amount of deep sleep. Consult a sleep specialist regarding this.
For the last few days though, I've been getting what I can only describe as an occasional shooting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> at the top of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> or bottom ear area. It's not even major painful, just a little. It can be either ear, can last few a couple of seconds or 10,20,30 seconds. No set pattern to it. It then just goes away. I think because I'm very conscious of it, I'm making it out to be worse. Does anyone else suffer this? Is it another symptom?
After 7 months of symptoms similar to yours - I am still not sure if neck problems cause the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> (and facial <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> and ear <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> lower back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</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.
I wanted to pursue surgery but when I saw Google and he was obivously in too much pain and saw the Xray plates that showed how terribly broken his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> was, I agreed to have him put down. I don't want him to experience <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. I believe Google deserves to pass on with dignity. My husband and I buried him in our garden. I miss him terribly. Thank you for your comforting words.
I then began to experience slight <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in the area below the ear. Hurts when I chew. Internist xrayed my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> 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.
I am tired of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> clenching, vertigo headaches and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. I wear a mouth splint at night, but still clench (although it is saving my teeth at least!) Has anyone heard of a relationship between TMJ and vertigo?
i keep getting numbness, tingling and hot feelings in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> since. i no longer have the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my tooth, but i would like to know if this is normal. i am thinking of having it extracted, will this make any difference?
There are also more symptons like random bed wetting (I never bedwet as a kid, It started when I was around 13), and I have had my bladder enlarged as it was the size of an 8 year old. Didn't help much. Also <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> levels can get quite extreme, stabbing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>, dull aches etc. I also get general discomforts which aren't painful but are more irritating than the pain. I have time where I am feeling fine. Before the muscle spasms set in, I was fine from the oct 2009 till feb 2010.
