A constant ache in the jaw, sometimes fuzzy ears. - that's my jaw been sore to touch my cheeks near my ears, feeling bruised.

Four days ago I woke up with mildly sore inner mouth, along the gums and lower inner jaw, as well as a little soreness on one side of my upper gums. I have been using mouthwash twice a day. The second or third day there was one small white bump that formed, but since then that has disappeared. Should I be worried? What could this be? Will it go away? What can I use to help it go away? Do I need to go to the dentist.
dont think its an infection because i dont have any other symptoms of a infection but the one is bothering me is my jaw, ever since yesterday, both sides have been feeling sore and kinda tight. it comes and goes and now, only the side by my wisdom tooth hole feels tight. a few days earlier, i've been biting down on my teeth alot, could this be why? but i stopped doing it and the pain is still there.
5 weeks ago I started feeling a sore throat on the right side (this side always has bothered me on and off since I had strep in august 2013). I do have TMJ, I clench my jaw at night and often during the day. I have been having ear pain on that side. I did a endoscopy of my nose, ear and throat and the doctor said I was fine, just inflamed. Any ideas why inflammation can last this long? I was concerned with cancer but she told me she saw and felt nothing cancerous in my tonsil and throat.
Shortly after the 6 month period I started getting sharp pains under my jaw on the one side for a month, then on the other side for another month. How ever I have had no sore throat and no fever. Now all the glands on both sides of my throat are sore, but not swollen. I have read a lot on swollen glands being an early symptom of hiv, but I am not clear on what sore glands with no sore throat means. None of my lymph glands feel enlarged. Is it possible these symptoms could be ARS?
I was getting worried too but I did read that can take a while for the lymph nodes to go down. Mine was under the neck on my right side. My neighbor who is a nurse practitioner said it was normal. If it gets a lot bigger or doesn't go away get it checked.The big sign for a tumor is they have no pain. So, it is good that it is tender.

Hello All, I suddenly got a painfull swollen gland / lymph node under my jaw bone / neck area on only one side. The gland is swollen enough that you can almost notice a difference between each side of my neck. This started last night out of nowhere. The only other symptoms I have is a slightly sore and runny nose but I just got over a sinus infection. Otherwise I feel fine. Why is it only on one side and what could it be?

I am hoping to at least get some antibiotics. Today, I noticed a discoloration on one side of my face. I have been eating nothing but soup & yogurt. My teeth on that side of my face also hurt a lot, however, I can see nothing wrong with any of my teeth when I look inside my mouth. If there is something of that nature wrong, it would have to be deep in my jaw or something. This just came on out of nowhere. I am really dizzy & my jaw hurts so much. I hope I can make it through the night.
She said she could see little clusters of sores on 3 different spots on my gums, one on each side and one in the middle. She said it was something viral, similiar to herpes, and gave me something called Magic Mouthwash. When I asked her what was causing the jaw pain on the outside, she couldn't tell me. When I asked her what would cause me to just suddenly break out with a bunch of sores like that, for no apparent reason, she couldn't answer that either.

He never told me what it was. Is this all happening on one side of your body? Normally when lymph nodes swell up its because there fighting off an infection of some sort. Are you sore around your collar bone or under your armpits, any lumps in those areas? Have you had a mammogram lately ? Just from past experience that is why i am asking.
Now i'm not sure what it is, but my jaw hurts pretty bad. It's only on one side and it's where the bottom jaw and upper jaw connect on my right side. I think it might be the fact that I only chew on that side? Or it might have something to do with the weather? It started this year about a month or two ago. So any suggestions on what it is?
