Sore jaw below ear

Common Questions and Answers about Sore jaw below ear

sore

had a stabing pain behind left ear, it was between my ear and jaw bone, recently had two teeth pulled near the front. it hurt when i open my mouth and the ice cream made it hurt. I also have a sinus infection and sore throat.
I am 20 years old. Few months back i found a pea sized lump below my jaw close to my neck, It is pain less. But i feel that area to be a bit swollen. I hav a slight pain in the back part of my neck, sore throught, I can hear a sound on that side of my ear when i drink something. I usually have had head aches on my left side. And also a slight pain in my left year... A pain below my left feet.. connected to the second small finger. and also when i sneeze i have a pain below by right abdomen.
I have had a similar symptom. First I would get get an occasional feeling of cool liquid in my year but nothing is there. About a month later, my jaw on the same side as the "cool" ear got real sore. It has been a month or so now, with the jaw still sore, and the ear getting those cool liquid feelings now on a regular almost constant basis. Hmm... TMJ? I have some rhumatoid arthritis in my family. Maybe I am disintegrating. Just my luck.
I have a similar issue that I just found below my ear, but on my jaw line. I was sick with a sinus infection for a week, and then partook in NYE festivities (bad idea). When I woke up the back of my jaw line leading down to my neck (in the joint of my jaw and neck) was really sore. Yes, it happened, literally, over night. The soreness subsided two days later, but now there is what feels like a large lump.
I gradually developed a constant, dull ache at the back of my head, below my left ear. I then got a minor earache and sore throat almost simultaneously... both on the left side. I am always trying to 'pop' my own neck to relieve pain/stiffness at the base of my skull...on the left side... Now, my tongue... I guess about 10 days ago, I started biting my tongue.. You don't really consider that a symptom of anything, but it happened 3 or 4 times in a week.
I then began to experience slight jaw pain in the area below the ear. Hurts when I chew. Internist xrayed my jaw 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 have a lump on my jaw just below my ear lobe. It doesn't hurt just looks like I have a gland swollen. Does anyone have any suggestions to what this might be??? I have an appointment next week to have a CT scan done but was wanting to maybe find some ideas before I have it done.
i yawned and felt a pop below my right ear. now my bottom jaw really hurts and it feels like my mouth is tired. it feels like i have been chewing gum all day and i haven't. does amyone know what this might be? and anything to do about it?
Below is a summary of my situation. So far nothing has helped. If anyone is familiar with this type of symptom and what could be done, I'd appreciate it. I have been suffering increasingly for about 2 years and recently have stopped working..
I've noticed after you were posting to Josh before that the muscle below my ear, like where your carotid artery would be, is very sore to touch, the facial tingling is worse when I bend my head in either direction, actually that triggers it. Let me know what you think, you seem very smart at this kinda stuff. Oh, by the way, never no pain in my face, only sore and stiff shoulder and neck pain. Thank you, have a brandy for me!
I almost feel as though it's situated inside my ear and it's causing the nerves along my upper and lower right jaw to hurt. I'd say on a scale of 1-10, the pain is around 7, possibly even 8 at times. It gets worse when I lie down on my back. It isn't relieved by cold or heat applied to the area. Eating something also seems to worsen the pain to bring it on. I went in about a month ago for my 6 month dental checkup and everything was great.
and i noticed yesterday i have a swollen lymph node in my neck just below my left jaw.. and my left ear aches sometimes.. my throat today only hurts on the left side.. is there anyone familiar with this??
a few months ago i noticed my jawbone just below my ear, near the joint was hurting. I started feeling around and found a little hard cyst type thing on my jawbone. i have kept track of it and it's getting bigger and the pain in my bone is still there. Now the pain goes down, it follows my jawbone and hurts under my jawline. I felt another little cyst pushing up with my thumb on the bottom of my jawbone. That side of my face feels kind of heavy or full all the time.
on the left side of my face, right next to my ear and directly below my cheekbone on what I think to be my jaw joint, I have a penny sized round lump. It seems to be firm with a slight squishiness to it that alllows me to slightly move it with my finger. It is not painful to the touch, but can feel agitated after rubbing it. It often clicks and is an uncomfortable obstruction to opening or moving my mouth freely.
feeling started first, for about a week, and then the gland hurt in my neck, and then that stopped and traveled up to just below my ear, and then went over to just below my ear on the other side...and then the achiness around my neck (sometimes under jaw, sometimes on the front of my throat - which I don't see any evidence of a swollen thyroid).
Now it seems there's a dull pain when not even eating, slight headache, neck pain just below right jaw, also several times a sharp ear pain occured enough to woke me up in morning. Im going to try eating soft food/soup now see if it cures the problem. Or should i go to dentist now? Thank you.
I just thought I'd add that the lump isn't by my jaw, but rather half way up my ear and directly behind that. Sorry if that's even more confusing than what I posted.
A couple of weeks ago I noticed a swollen lymph node under my right jaw bone curve. It was painful to the touch, including painful sensation/sore throat when swallowing, in the general area. I didn't experience any type of severe symptoms, such as night sweats or fever. A friend who is an oral surgeon put me on amoxicillin and the pain subsided. He also inspected my throat and said my tonsils were a bit swollen as well.
While after having some extensive tooth work done (I have severe decay that still persists) about two years ago, I noticed that I had sore spot under my right jaw. When I felt the spot, I could feel a small (bean-sized) lump that was positioned in a hollow space next to the interior of my jaw. The lump seems round, firm (but not hard), and I can freely move it up the other (cheek side) of my jaw.
I also get migraine headaches and have been diagnosed with TMJ, but I really dont think that has to do with my ear, as the pain is my EAR not from my JAW. PLEASE, if anyone has any info on where to go or how to help....SHARE! :) Much appreciated!
Yep--lymph nodes----I just had a infection that dealt with my lymph nodes on the right side lower neck up to the top of my neck with the one behind my ear very very sore---I did not run fever---but I had heaches, and very tired----I did go to the doctor and we talked about mono---but he said it would not affect the nodes in that way---he did put me on some antibiotics----they helped----but I had to go back and then we talked about mumps---all in all everything was fine----I just had a bad infect
Usual for me to get some right side neck pain and discomfort - I haven't had it for a while but last week I got this neck pain, radiating from jaw (below my right ear) to my right eye, right ear and even down to my right collar bone - but the lumps are not tender or sore and are hard. Two lump seems to be deeper than the other one - one is really superficial and feels like what was left of my childhood fatty lump.
no memory of them just a badly bitten tongue during the first ( was awaken by what felt like an ear infection itching in ear and pain above my ear Top left just below temple) and 1 week later...more tongue bites..and a swallon left side of face. Apparently I got up fell hit my jaw "HARD" and layed back down. Its been three weeks now. Most of the doctors think it was a medication mix that caused the seizures (zolot and tramdol) Never had seizures before.
Mid Feb 2010, I have had some strange discomfort below jaw (what seemed like a swollen lymph node), went to check neck lymph nodes no problem. Went ENT doctor told him about Thailand, and swollen gland on the right side. He said it was nothing. Blood work and urine test, as well as neck ultrasound clear. No problems with throat or nose at this point.
5cm) about 3months later i got another sore throat and the gland below my earlobe was still there but they was a new one in my neck, just below my jaw. A few days later a skin infection came out around my lips(not itchy,peeled wen i didnt put cream on it and neva bled). It seemed like stuck on skin and when i put cream on it, the skin was coming off exposing my normal skin underneath it.
27/F-limited sex partners, protected. 2 months ago started dating a new guy. NO vaginal sex, just him fingering me/me performing UNPROTECTED oral on him. He has HSV-1. Asked if he is clean otherwise, he replied that he has been tested, & doesn't knowingly have anything. After the 1st time I performed oral I got a sore throat a day later. The oral sex lasted 4 quite awhile, & he has a large penis. He ejaculated into my mouth.
) in front of my ear and around the masseter, was ever so slightly sore, or very slightly tight feeling. It was annoying, but I could still eat, smile, speak, etc. Towards the end of the day the lightheaded feeling remained yet again, and my jaw was feeling better, but it was now making mild popping/clicking noises as I ate a sandwich before getting ready for bed. This was accompanied by a squelching or wheezing sensation/sound in my right ear.
Ciprofloxacin and Doxycycline would clear out most bacteria from an infected throat. Ask your doctor to look and consider herpes simplex or aphthous ulcers.
Rashes or fungal infections Swollen lymph nodes sore throat Has a doctor said you have a low grade infection, but no antibiotic has fixed it? Every time I go to the doctor they say I have an infection and prescribe antibiotics or tell me to take like 9 vitamins a day.
