Stress seems to be another factor, as well as keeping my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> completely clenched while sleeping. I was examined by my husband (who is a chiropractor) today and he examined my jaw. I must first mention that this condition is very much right-sided. He noted SEVERE inflammation in my right jaw joint. He had me feel both sides of my jaw and the right side is portruded significantly.
Not sure exactly what started this whole thing off, but last July (2012) I had an intense sore throat left side only with a minor ear ache. Enough that it had me worried about the "C". Went to prompt care a few days later to be told I probably had a virus and they could see nothing in my ear or throat. They did a strep test - negative. Suggested I might try OTC allergy or even acid reflux meds. Imagine my relief. Well, I got no relief. I scheduled an appt for a physical.
Hey guys, I just started experiencing this sinus pain/tenderness while I am <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chewing</span> too! It is on my right side and feels like it's kind of in the bone, very close to my eye. I asked a friend about it and she felt certain that it's due to a condition called TMJ, which means that your upper and lower jaw don't quite line up with one another. To test if you have TMJ: put one index finger on each side of your jaw, then open your mouth wide.
Just the other night my teeth started aching, then my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> felt <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> and my ears felt plugged. The next morning when I woke up my head hurt, my teeth ached, my ears ached and were plugged and it was hard to swallow. My glands under neath my throat were even swollen. I have never felt this kind of pressure in my ears and jaw that wont go away. I have taen everything and more to stop this most uncomfortable pain. Help me. PLEASE....
I was very careful about aftercare, stayed on liquid diet for quite a while, almost two weeks. Had no infections, no dry sockets, etc. Two of the three sites have healed well, almost completely healed in. The bottom-right side, however, is still causing problems. I have a very tender ball of swelling just below my TMJ, near my jawbone. chewing is still painful for anything that's dense or crunchy. I've been back in to my surgeon twice.
I think this may be contributing to my problem and once the crown is on and I am <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chewing</span> normally, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> function will return to normal. I hope. However, while I am prepared to be patient, at what point after the crown is on should I seek medical attention for this problem? I have at least a minimum of two or three months to go before the bone is healed and crown is on. Thank you Dr.
I'm a 23 year old male and I've had a chronic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> throat for over 5 months now. It's driving me out of my mind.. Please help me where my other Doctors have not.. I've been tested for allergies and I've had a few allergies to trees indiginous to my location. But upon use of Clarinex, Allegra, Zyrtec, etc. I received no relief. I had a Barium swallow which showed reflux.. I was treated with 40 mg Nexium, twice a day. This did not help.
I'm currently being treated for chronic Lyme's Disease as all of these symptoms fit and the medical community is only now putting more focus on this disease. I just want to add one more time that inexplicably <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chewing</span> gum constantly while driving has made it tolerable most days to drive so it's worth a shot. Still hoping for a 'real' answer.
About two months ago she started moaning a lot while she was just lying down. Sometimes it is loud enough to wake us up at night. It really does sound like she is in pain, and she is not the type of dog to ever whine or cry, she is very tough. Prior to this, the only time she has ever cried from pain was when I accidentally closed the door on her tail. It's not a constant moan, but somewhat frequent throughout the night or in the evening when we are watching tv.
I have had a sore lymph node, im assuming for amost a week, its one thats never really gotten <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> in the past. its right under the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> corner, straight below the ear. I cant really touch it, b/c its in a spot i really have to work, bend the chin down to really get to/feel. It only hurts really, when i suck through a straw, or suck in my lips. and sometimes when chewing. Last Wednesday, I remember crying really hard, and then Thursday, I woke up and it was sore.
Then my invention will offer no solace. It's only guaranteed if the cause of the problem is that the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> opens while sleeping (on ones back). If hepatitis plays a role in the problem, there may be nothing for it but dry humor. In that case: there's a kind of little fish used in spas for psoriasis patients. The fish nibble away peeling skin and leave the healthy skin unscathed.
I feel fine, I'm not overly tired, the nodes are not sensitive or painful to touch, no fevers, no nausea. However, one day while <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chewing</span>, I did experience some immediate discomfort in my jaw that led to nausea and dizzyness. I ate soft foods for the next three days and it hasn't really gone back to normal yet. Is there any relation between my jaw and these swollen lymph nodes do you think?

My bite has been bothering me less, though there was a slightly painful, tingling sensation in the left part of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span>. Eating food/prolonged <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chewing</span> now gives me a dull headache when it didn't before. The headache is also now accompanied by a full pressure in the skull/ head, a slight burning/tingling sensation in the back/top of the head, and brief more intense headaches in the front of the head. I've been experiencing a lot of stress lately, which I know is often associated with bruxism.
I've had that too! I thought for a while it might be an early sign of diabetes or something like that, like a blood sugar thing. I found it would not happen with certain foods or drinks, like coffee, which didn't make much sense to me because I put three sugars in my coffee haha. I found the dizziness or light-headedness more pronounced with starchy foods like breads or french fries. Also the longer I had gone without eating would seem to make it worse.
You have to press on muscles of your face to look for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> points. To get some relief you can try massaging the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> muscles. Massaging the muscles does not help every one. Also if the procedure is nor correct, then it can further aggravate the problem. Then massage these points with short strokes. To massage the masseter muscles on each side of your jaw, place your thumb inside your mouth and squeeze the thick muscle in your cheek with your fingers.

I went to a doctor about 2 years ago to get it checked and he said it was because I was chewing too much gum. I stopped <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chewing</span> gum for a while but nothing changed. I dont know if this has anything to do with my ear and throat but I also always feel light headed, drowsy, and deenergized. I get normal amounts of sleep, I do not drink alcohol a lot, I do drink coffee, I drink regular amounts of water, and I eat healthy for the most part. I also do not have any allergies.
I'm having really bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> pain, like bad enough i can sleep, so i decided to go to the ER at 1 in the morning to see if anything could be given to me to help ease the pain untill i can see my dentist...however the triage desk heard the words "20 weeks pregnant" and despite me not saying anythign about pregnancy pain etc sent to me up to the labor and delivery floor...
I too have had that locked up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> thing and it is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> for a while but then goes away. I always take it as a sign that I've been talking too much....
• Headaches • Sensitive and sore teeth • Facial pain • Neck and shoulder aches • Ringing in the ears • <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> pain • Ear congestion • Clicking/ popping of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> • Worn down teeth • Clenching/ bruxing • Limited opening of the mouth • Cervical/ neck problems • Loose teeth • Tingling in the fingertips • Dizziness/ vertigo Patients suffering from these symptoms often have to learn to live with pain.
My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> started popping periodically, especially when <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chewing</span> gum, about a year or so ago. There was never any pain, just annoying. I also started having headaches pretty bad. Then, I started to notice that I would get "flare ups" where it would pop alot and ache in my face and jaw. Several months ago I started having these headaches while I would sleep. I would go to bed and after sleeping about 5 hours, I would wake up with a horrific headache ALL OVER my head.
Other symptoms to monitor for include changes in your vision, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> fatigue while <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chewing</span> or talking, and frank <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> pain. If you experience any of these symptoms you should call your doctors immediately. Without examining you and reviewing your history I cannot provide an accurate clinical diagnosis. However, given the history which you have provided one would need to consider if this is just a normal headache or possibly related to temporal arteritis.
Anyway, after getting the proper filling (bottom right side of mouth, about half way along right side), It's been two weeks and I still can't chew on that side because it hurts so much when I bite down, it's very painful and giving me pain all up the right side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> and into my temple. The dentist said it might take a while for the pain to go away when he did it because he had to clean it out, but 2 weeks seems like a bit too long to still be feeling this kind of sharp, constant pain.
It also has a motor portion that ennervates the muscles of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chewing</span>. V3's (the mandibular branch) runs mostly along the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> and serves the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> area above the jawline, the lower lip and the lower gums. The most common source of TN is V2, so that the pain is felt in the middle of the side of the face. The person may feel convinced that the pain is coming from the upper teeth and it is not uncommon to have people insist that these teeth be taken out.
One of the most difficult concepts to get across to my TMD patients and other doctors is the connectivity of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> and the Neck. In fact, it is my strong belief that TMD/TMJ should really be classified as a Craniocervical Disease and hence fall under the umbrella of medical coverage rather than treated strictly as a dental problem. To the Neuromuscular-minded dentist, "Occlusion" is an extension of general Postural Consideration.
For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
