My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> has been sore for the past few days, and i've noticed a line of small blisters inside my cheek one on side - very small - like pinpoints - that have just appeared (6 days after the sex).

Four days ago I woke up with mildly sore inner mouth, along the gums and lower inner jaw, as well as a little soreness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e is bothering me is my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span>, 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> (this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> always has bothered me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> for a month, then <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the other <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span>. 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.
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 sore like pounding,pulsating! right at the back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my lower left <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!
Hello All, I suddenly got a painfull swollen gland / lymph node under my jaw bone / neck area <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> only <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span>. 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?
(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 left 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 !!
Does anyone else have pain from time to time under jaw line and sometimes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the sides of my neck and it looks like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> is puffed out ..I cannot feel anything really thought I felt a small knot but Husband said "no" ...or he was just saying that..has anyone experienced this before.
I am hoping to at least get some antibiotics. Today, I noticed a discoloration <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> 3 different spots <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my gums, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> each <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e 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.
Also sometimes i get mild pain in right ear and weird <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> feelings after waking up when i sleep <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> of my body. Do you think my wisdom tooth infection has spread or moved. Can an infection be present with such mild symptoms? 4 can a tooth ache cause node to swell?
I have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> pain for many days, only <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span>, now i have ear and throat pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the same side, and my jaw hurts so bad, like I had been punched (or so I assume) really har din the jaw. It hurts to eat, and I have pain in my ear and a sore throat.....can anyone give me advise? Bad sinuses? Time to go the Dr?

He never told me what it was. Is this all happening <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> hurts pretty bad. It's only <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> 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?
- some ache in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> when talking (very minor compared to right side) misc: - have tried gentle cranial massage, chiro, acupuncture without success
I have a lot of pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> of my head. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> hurts almost feels like a tooth ache. I often find myself clenching my jaw. Has anyone else experienced this feeling/pain?
No it is sun and the pain is only bad if I push directly don <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> that tooth--HOWEVER---my entire <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> hurts <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> now, I have pressure in my sinus <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> that side and i think I feel a bit of a lump (which is sensitive to pressure) on the bottom of my jaw directly under that tooth. I will go back in the morning but to get a second opinion will take a few days and a couple hundred mile round trip. Any thoughts? I am tired of the pain and even more tired of the pain medicine.
