Lower jaw pain sinus infection

Common Questions and Answers about Lower jaw pain sinus infection

jaw-pain

Infections of the sinuses can (rarely) extend beyond the anatomical confines of the sinus cavity. This can lead to infection of an area called the cavernous sinus. CT Scan or MRI can show any abnormalities of the cavernous sinus. You should request consultation with an ENT specialist and ask that your son be seen without delay. Involvement of the cavernous sinus is a rare but serious complication and could explain the pain and numbness.
Other possibilities are infection of the TMJ (temperomandibular joint), temporal arteritis, Eagle’s syndrome (stylohyoid syndrome), parotid gland disorders etc. Sinus infection can be source for infection around jaw. For infection, you need to take empirical antibiotic and NSAIDs course against prescription. I suggest you to consult ENT surgeon. Take care and regards.
For the last year I've had pain and the dentist drilled it down and now I have so much pain. I've had neck pain, jaw pain and dizziness. So much dizziness that I was referred to an ENT. After extensive testing, I was diagnosed the Vestibular Optic Reflex (VOR). I'm continuing eye exercises, but I'm still having pain and motion issues. If there a correlation between the tooth and nerve and my vision? HELP please.
I went to see my doctor today because I had been having the lower jaw pain and then pain near my ears. I have a chronic sinus infection,very bad they said. So i guess my jaw pain was the sinuses not temp. crowns. Which feel ok now. I get permanent ones on in 7 days. Can't wait to see the new me.
thats when the extreem pain started and swelling of both upper and lower gums. I do clinch my teeth, jaw pops/cracks more as I get older. So I was sent to a oral surgen to get the moler pulled, took exrays and he said No way; your sinus are swelling. Went to medical Dr. got that 5 day medican, a week later took extrays again and still tells me sinus infection. My nose fells clear, my ears do hurt and my jaw aches, along with swollen gums, only on right side.
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 been taking Motrin every 6 hours or so, but it doesn't seem to provide me with much relief. The pain hits me about every hour or so, then subsides.
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>.
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.
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?
Seemed to think problem was other than tooth-- possible ear infection or sinus infection. He gave me two perscriptions. I then went to see my primary care Dr. who examined upper respiratory system. He seems to think I have a sinus infection but said it could also be start of shingles. He converted my dentist's perscriptions to vicodin, azithromycin, & MucinexD. Still much pain 12 hrs. later. Hope this stuff works. Your comments?
In a way it's comforting, since I'd hardly like to imagine a sinus infection capable of kicking a lower tooth's butt. Since then I've noticed a couple things. My top row of teeth aren't hurting constantly like before - in fact, hardly ever, and only for a couple minutes when they do - so I reckon it's just a matter of congestion rather than a concentrated infection in my maxillary canal like before.
Third possibility can be sinusitis due to possible oro-antral fistula after extraction leading to sinus infection. This may lead to dull pain over the cheek area but inability to close eye and tongue involvement may not be explainable with this condition. You may consult an oral surgeon/physician/ neurologist to rule out above stated possibilities who may be able to help you in this regard. Take care.
) Anyways, as the nights went on, I eventually started noticing some slight dizzyness/lightheadedness along with my sinuses killing me, so I naturally thought sinus infection. I only had a couple days left so I just took some Tylenol Cold and Sinus and sucked it up. I got back last thrusday and had made a doctors appt because of the sinus problems for last friday. When I got home last thrusday night my head felt like it was going to explode and I had a lot of lightheadedness.
I had just switched allergy medications, from Nasonex to generic Flonase, right at the time my symptoms returned. Could allergies have led to a sinus infection? Can the sinus infection cause dizziness and fatigue? Due to the holiday weekend I haven't been able to call my doctor, but after 3 prior visits he's never suggested sinuses to be a cause.
Just to rule another factor out,have you recently had a sinus infection?Also have you ever been told you grind?Check with your dentist on this.I personally have visible evidence of clenching.My lower cuspids are not pointy,rather flat.Also my lower front teeth you can see a slight color difference on the top incisal edge.I mention this so you can look in the mirror to see if you see evidence simular to mine.The reason I asked is you mentioned jaw pain.
I would go back to the Dentist who did the previous work and have him/her order some test and they can refer you to the correct Doctor if you do have TMJ. Sinus infection may be causing some of the pain too. Are you taking antibiotics?
I have a disorder called Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome. I googled pain in my lower ear/neck jaw, and found this link. I am wondering how many POTS symptoms could be linked to the pain and swelling under my jaw/ears. POTS causes dizziness, swollen glands...among other things... One thought is to research POTS and eliminate it as a possible cause of your illness. Another thought... Who is smoking, eating dairy, living in a high humidity clime?
Like someone is trying to push my eyes out of its socket and blowing up a balloon in my head. Then the pain/pressure has moved into my ears. But most of the pain still stays in my lower jaw area. I think I am now also starting to feel funny around my eyebrow area. ~Then I went back to the ER because of the face pain and I noticed that the right side of my neck is swollen (notice this is the same side that the muscle started twitching).
My son has had a very bad sinus infection and has been on antibiotics for the last 5 days. His ears are very congested, especially the right ear.The right side of his face is sore as well. He is also experiencing a slight numbness in his chin and bottom lip. He also has a shooting pain that travels from his right ear/jaw down through his lower teeth to his chin. My question is, is this all connected? The dentist has already ruled out any dental problems.
now the pain seems to have moved to my lower jaw / bottom back molar. i have heard that a sinus infection can cause pain in the upper teeth. can it also cause pain in the lowe jaw/ teeth?
It was occasional problems such as mild sinus pain/pressure and headache with mild eye strain. Each year it has gotten worse. Over the course of the past 5 years I have seen multiple doctors across different specialites: Ears, Nose & Throat, Neurologist, Allergist, and my Intern. I have had MRI's and CT scans. This year has been the worst so far. I have already gotten 2 sinus infections.
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?
If these are infected, you may have pain in your upper jaw, your teeth may ache, and your cheeks may have pain when you touch them. Note: One of the causes of maxillary sinusitis is a tooth abscess that has leaked the infection into the maxillary sinus. The teeth may be X-rayed to find this. • Ethmoid sinuses. If infection occurs, you may get puffy eyes and pain between them. The sides of your nose may get tender to the touch, your nose may get stuffy, and you won’t be able to smell so well.
