Avatar_n_tn hello, i accidently bit the side of my cheek n now there is an open sore which is located back toward my top widsom tooth <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> now its not only causing pain in my cheek but it also is causing minor to medium pain in my lower jaw... it hurts when i talk, eat or just even have my mouth closed... i believe that the open sore could be infected but still not sure... is there any way to possible help the pain without pescription medicine? maybe anything over the counter i could take?
Avatar_n_tn Now I have a canker <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span>, lower <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> of my mouth (not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the gum), and I'm experiencing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> pain in the same area, under my neck. I can feel where the vein is pulsating with my fingers. My teeth don't hurt when I chew on that side, and there's no sensitivity to temperature (obviously the canker sore stings when things get into it). The jaw pain didn't start until after I started using mouthwash in addition to brushing.
Avatar_n_tn OK so I had what i think was an infected wisdom tooth about the last two weeks, the pain has pretty much all gone away but now <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> there is a very hard lump right around where you would feel if you had a sore throat (a lymph node I think). It dosen't really hurt but it is limiting the movement in my jaw and kind of freak me out any help???
Avatar_n_tn Hi i have found a small lump <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> bone i can feel in when i touch the external side but i can not feel it on the inside of my mouth, should i be concerned? it is sore to touch. Your advice would be very grateful as i am a mother of a small newborn and dont want to go to the doc unless it is necessary.
Avatar_f_tn after eating ice cream I had terrible 8 to 10 cramping spasm pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span>. Since then off and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> I am experiencing the same pain involuntarily sometimes lasting 5 to 15 minutes. I do not want to take OTC Aleve etc as I have had stomach ulcers. Do you know of other alternatives to reduce pain and inflammation? Also have a little swelling on left side.
Avatar_m_tn A few days ago, my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> began to become <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> to open. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> feels full and sore. There has not been any trauma involved, and I will admit I haven't always been the best with Dental Hygeine.
Avatar_n_tn It was pretty late and afterwards I had a fat and cut lip <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> of my face, and my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> was extremely sore on my right side. This was Saturday night, and today (thursday) it is still giving me problems. The pain is off and on but it is the worst when i move my jaw from side to side, when i chew, when i sneeze (very painful), and occasionally when i yawn or open my mouth wide. Like i said that is only occasionally.
277276_tn?1189874372 About a week ago I noticed that I had this little bump in my nose which of course i am sure it was a pimple we all know how aggrivating they can be, about two days later I got a canker sore in the corner of my lip, then about a day after that I got these little white bumps on my tongue that where very painful, it was about two days ago I had told someone that it felt like someone had just punched me right in the jaw on my left side it was very sore.
746512_tn?1388811180 My whole neck and head hurt, mainly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span>. There is also a point <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the top of my head I keep <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> getting a sharp, stabbing pain on and it *****!! I hurt. :'( It's not normally this sore ...
Avatar_n_tn Fluid in inner ear, swollen lymph node below ear, cracking/clicking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> throat with large swollen lymph node <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span>, swollen bottom molar gums. I don't have pain anywhere except for my sore throat especially on the left side. My doctors basically explained it like this: Inner ear fluid is caused by TMJ, throat will get better on its own. This, to me, seems ridiculous as all my symptoms are on the left, and feel like they're all related. I don't know what to do.
Avatar_m_tn Lately I have been expieriencing some strange symptoms that I've done numerous searches <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> but found nothing. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> of my body feels very strange, like a heavy feeling that makeS me feel like its weaker than my right side it does nOt effect my balance or anything but both my leg and my hand get tired faster than usual I can draw a line right sown the center of my body that seperate there two sides.
Avatar_n_tn Not sure if related or not, but I have a constant drainage down the back of my throat <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span>. I can actually feel it. I sometimes have tingling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the left side of my face (was worse before, but not as much now). I am achy in my left arm and left leg at times also. The achiness feels like what I would describe as arthritis (never had it before). My left eye has recently began to feel puffy as if there is swelling behind it, although I can't see any swelling.
Avatar_m_tn I usually have had head aches <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span>. And also a slight pain in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> year... A pain below my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> feet.. connected to the second small finger. and also when i sneeze i have a pain below by right abdomen. I have a very week body... What would it be??
Avatar_n_tn The rashes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> arm are worse then my rash <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my right i also have a rash <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> of my forehead. Now I have painful bumps on my lips two on the top left and two on the lower lip even top to bottom. my left lymphnode under my jaw is also swollen. and my tongue is also sore or the tip hurts when i roll my tongue. And in the past week I seen my doctor and had blood test done and everything was fine.
Avatar_f_tn It started off with light muscle twitching on my lower left jaw and i felt this area was quite swollen - then my gums have been slightly swollen and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> like pounding,pulsating! right at the back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my lower <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> i have a white spot i have been told its not cancer its scar tissue from wisdom tooth removal- however this was there before i had the tooth removed - my glands under my jaw in my neck are swollen & sore thy have been like this for the past year & half!
Avatar_f_tn For the past month, maybe more, my left gland under my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> has been excessively swollen. I don't have any other unusual symtoms. No <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> throat. All Ican think of is that Ihave weird muscle twitches all over my body; my arms, legs, feet, sometimes neck area.. But my left gland is really swollen, but my right one is normal size. I don't know what this can be fromm.. I exercise daily, eat a lot, Idont get sick often..
Avatar_f_tn It has been about 2 weeks since i last went to him maybe. Anyway, today i woke up with a headache, and then started to get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> cheeks, mostly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span>. Later in the day my eye started to prickle and now the left side of my face is numb again. If i still have the symptoms tomorrow i am going back to the doctor. I just want to find out what is causing this problem as it is quite uncomfortable. I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but my jaw clicks and locks quite a bit.
Avatar_n_tn (If i feel for it) which the doctors say they cant. And also when i lie down <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> hand <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> only and feel my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> a certain point it gets quite painfull , when i stand it goes away THIS IS WEARING ME OUT PLEASE HELP !!
Avatar_m_tn I live in China and 3 years ago I have 2 root canals and 2 new crowns placed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> both my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> and my right top sides. These were my 4th crowns altogether as I wasn't very good with my teeth as a kid. About a couple weeks after my crowns were put in I began to hear a "tv like" ear ringing sound in my head when I went to sleep.
Avatar_n_tn I take so many Ibuproferin every day and it also feels like a tad bit of a sore throat but mainly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> of gland....tip of tongue has red bumps <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> it and feels numb sometimes....feeling frustrated that this has gone on for sooooooooooo long but a little too scared to see doc...sad, i know! :( Any ideas////// is here everyday.....gets worse by the end of everyday. Thanks in advance! BTW...I'm 29 year old female, in great shape....?????? Who knows?????? I tend to worry!
198187_tn?1190637930 Hi, yes I always get pain under my jawline and it comes and goes and it can be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span>. It seems like the whole side of the neck gets puffy and sore. I went to an endo. about it, because I've had a lot of discomfort and is somewhat painful when I swallow and it radiates up to the ear. I currently have Hashimotos disease. They ran a thyroid ultrasound and also an ultrasound of the soft tissues in the neck.
