Sore jaw under ear

Common Questions and Answers about Sore jaw under ear

sore

I've noticed it all day, there is a slight lump on the right side under my jaw. It is moveable, and isn't excruciating just yet. When I apply pressure, or face my head downwards, it gets very sore. I am very curious to know if this is heard of commonly or not, and if it is a serious problem. Thank you!
But I have a bad cold at the moment and now the entire right side of my jaw is terribly sore, when I feel the lump under my jaw, it now hurts. I don't know if this is a swollen gland? I usually assume the worst and think cancer although I know it can't be true. If anybody knows what this might be it would help. My parents don't take my jaw issues seriously and probably won't take me to the doctor any time soon..
Does anyone else have pain from time to time under jaw line and sometimes on the sides of my neck and it looks like one side 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 have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and thought that I had it under control. But lately I have been having ear pain that feels like pressure in my ears. My jaw has started to hurt, and there are times that my throat has started to close up. My food has actually gotten stuck in there a couple of times. The ear pain started in my right ear, but now it is in my left ear, too. I don't know what is going on but if anyone found any answers since their last post, please let me know.
is your jaw feeling very tender around your ears? it seems you have a bit of what i think i have which is anxiety induced jaw / ear pain. i'm trying to massage my jaw lightly as i think one of my biggest issues is sleeping, and clenching my jaw while I sleep (which also affects my ears). i'm also going to the chiropractor to help with my neck... and about to schedule a dentist appointment so they can maybe take an xray, and see whther my jaw is misaligned.
The lymph node under my right jaw is sore and a little swollen. It comes and goes. It has done this several times.
I have pain on the right side right under my jaw joint, where my neck starts. I also have this unbearable ear pain in my right ear. It feels like it's full of pressure. Can somebody tell me what it is! I don't know how to fix it!
I woke up with a tender spot on the right side of my neck, just under my ear, under the jaw bone. I can feel a little something in there, not sure where to start for medical help. I had my wisdom teeth extracted again 2 years ago. (2nd time for me, I was one of those lucky ones who got extras) There were major complications with my surgery, no anti-biotics were given and i ended up with a really bad infection.
About a week ago it felt like a lymphnode under my chin was swollen and kind of sore. That worried me. Yesterday I started having ear pain on that same side. Today the ear pain is worse and my ear feels full, it's hard to describe. It hurts from my lymph node and into my jaw and ear. I am the type of person that always jumps to the worst conclusion. Could it be that I just have an ear infection and that the swollen lymph node was trying to fight it and lost?
No significant findings for me either. I did notice that when I press my finger between my jaw and mastoid, under my ear I can feel a hard mass, which the Dr. has assured me from the CT scan is my "Spinal Process". I can only feel this mass on the left side. I was terrified of C also, but have had every blood test, tangible, and visual inspection possible. I'm starting to think my neck vertebrae has shifted or twisted, causing all this.
HI 4 weeks ago i had painfull glands come up under my jaw line and throat area , they have since gone down . this left me with discomfort that i am aware of under my jawline and in my throat and neck area . I have been to my GP twice, and on both occasions said i was fine , I have had full bloods done and thyroid check all ok. But i still have this discomfort on either side under my jaw , i can still feel a lump either side too touch , under jawline.
Hi my name is Donna and I am 34 years old.I have a large knot under my Jaw bone maybe two knots because it feels like it is connected to my jawbone and there is another knot or maybe it's the same one but it is hard and it roles around under my chin.The knot and my jaw bone hurts . I take alot of medication because of other health problems (Thoracic degenerative disc disease, Osteoarthritis in all of my joints, Nerve damage and also have asthma.
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 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.
For the past year my symptoms have gone from mild to severe! 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!
By the way, it was only on my right side of my throat.
After he did the root canal I never had any more problems with my lymph nodes in my throat, but my ear still feels a little weird and sore sometimes to this day. An extraction is different I know, but I am wondering if the dentist took some nerves and tissue with the tooth as it was extracted that were not suppose to be removed from the body? That is scarey.
and it hurts , now, to touch right between my eyes on the bridge of my nose. My ear,jaw, cheek on the left side stll ache.. no signs of any dental problem. I am missing work and depressed about feeling so horrible. I just want to believe this is a sinus thing and it will go away!!! I 'm runing a slight fever.. never more than a degree and usually this is in the afternoon/night. Does this sound like a sinus infection ? I'm jus so weak and tired and miserable..
Gums looked fine and no dry socket the dr thought dentist stiched up hole with no way for abcess to drain so gave me more vicodin and amoxicillian. Pain has been and still is in face around jaw and nose then radiates to right ear and head. My ear feels like it has warm liquid in it sometimes. Pain has lessened in last 36 hours but if I even try to eat anything (soft foods) it starts to come back right away. Pain lessens but never goes away.
I have had some of the same issues, swollen lymph nodes under my Jaw, ear and and near my temple the doctor had put me on antibiotics and they all went down, I had it another time but it was swollen on my forhead and down the side by my temple and ear and jaw once more but it looked like I had a scab just above my hairline where it was red and getting bigger so he perscribed antibiotic cream and it went away. He never told me what it was. Is this all happening on one side of your body?
I suddenly had a sharp pain in the joint of my jaw, right under my ear, two weeks ago and my neck and throat were sore. I went to a doctor thinking I had an ear infection. The doctor said my neck had a cold. Since then the pain has increased terribly to my shoulder and back of left side of skull at the base and it is swollen. There is also some numb and tingling in my jaw and ear. Since Friday night I also started having this zapping feeling that is in my left foot.
I have heard the jaw shares the same nerve with the ear. If the TMJ is sore/spastic that the pain can be referred to the ear. Does anyone have experience with this situation? I also have pulsatile tinnitus (ringing in the ear to the rhythm to my heart but don't believe it is related as I have damaged my ears from earplugs/ipod music.
Had a partial root canal done and the same thing is happening to me; jaw and ear pain, swelling around the jaw area, sinuses draining. I've been dealing with this since the really July from a routine filling but it really got bad on Dec. 22nd 2006, when I hurt from my right side of my head down to my jaw and over to my ear. My dentist did say that my tooth needed a root canal and he did a partial but the pain is still there. Appreciate any input.
Ive never been able to chew gum for more than a few minutes at a time or I get an achey sore feeling in my lower jaw...My bite is off... Now, lately when I eat unless its soft food, I get the same achey tired feeling in my jaw muscles. It seems to be both sides..not just one. I do tend to clench my teeth when I sleep...and I feel more relief when my mouth is slightly open...anyone have any suggestions on how to reduce this achey feeling in my jaw muscles when I eat?
It seems to be immobile, and is kind of sore if pressure is put on it. It doesn't seem to be affecting my hearing or jaw directly, it's just it's presence that is disturbing. I do not have health insurance and can not afford to see a doctor at this time, so I wanted to see if I could get an idea of what it might be first. If it seems like something to be truly concerned about, then I will have to find a way to have it checked out.
I have the ear/jaw/vertigo problems occasionally as well. Sometimes my jaw swells up so that I cannot clench my teeth. Regarding the computer, I would add keep your elbows at your side, not reaching for the keyboard, and make sure your monitor is not set at 60 Hz refresh rate. That harmonizes with the 60 cycle lighting system, and can cause a sympathetic eye twitch. I've worked as a network administrator for 25 years, and have seen in others, and personally experienced these symptoms.
