My wife had an infected tooth and now she has a swollen gland under her jaw bone. Any ideas?
My lymph nodes around my neck were swollen, my gland under my tongue was swollen, my glands under my armpits were hurting, but that faded but I still have a few problems going on. Be careful with antibiotics. If a doc gives you a script for antibiotics, make sure you eat a lot of natural yogurt with live cultures. This helps keep a balance of bacteria and fungus in your mouth and digestive system and keeps you from getting THRUSH. Good luck.
However spinal compression will not. The glands in the neck are present on either side of midline, under the jaw, behind the ear, and above the collar bone. If they are swollen, you will be able to feel them easily. I would suggest that you consult your PCP once to see if there are swollen glands or not and to investigate the cause of pain. Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
AND if that's not awful enough, i had swollen glands every where (especially under chin and under ears on both sides)(by the way google glands...you'll see that those glands drain from a source of infection from the chin bone up...not to big an area i would think)...AND i had several ultra sounds...the dr.s were trying to figure out why my spleen was huge and my liver was covered with scare tissue and little clots/tears. IDIOTS! oh and by the way....

The one thing that i have noticed is that around the same time i noticed the lump, my gums on top of my wisdom teeth(or where they should be) were tender and swollen, along with tolerable pain in my jaw. so maybe the two are related somehow? I have a tiny jaw and i know that my wisdom teeth are most likely badly impacted. (my moms were also severely impacted) I have a dentist appointment next week so hopefully theyll know what this lump is (do dentists deal with salivary glands?
Hi Justan, My glands around my groin are large, about 2 to 3 cms, under my arms about 2 to 3 cms, under my collar bone about 2 cms and around my neck about 1cm, under my jaw under my ears and one 2 cms under my left side. .
The whole side of of my neck is these hard swollen lumps all the way up to under my chin. I'm 99% sure it's swollen glands, but I've never had anything like this before. Only on one side and from my collar bone to my jaw bone. My throat doesn't really hurt and my only other symptoms would be feeling a little tired and waking up with a little blister on my tounge. Anyone ever heard of this as a pregnancy thing or should I be worried about mumps or something like that??
I think I have 4 glands that are swollen in my neck area, the largest is on the left under my jaw bone about half way between my chin and jaw. It seems to be about 2 to 3 cm. The others 1 cm. or less. The largest one seems to have gotten harder over the last couple of weeks. I'm having a hard time not constantly thinking about the possibillity of having cancer. My wife keeps telling me not to worry, it's probably nothing.
My left ear feels like it is swollen inside, the gland just under my jaw bone, just at the collar bone, and the one beside my left ear, are all swollen--not huge, but enough that i notice them. I sometimes have that all over feeling you get when you are coming down with a cold, which can last from a few mins up to an entire week. I asked a nurse practitioner why it was just on one side of my body, and she said that some people's bodies do that.
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!
Its always something ain't it. I've had swollen lymph nodes for over 2 months, under jaw and at base of head in the back. I went to ENT to eliminate any other than possibility of Meds.Seems to bother me more for the first 5 days after Inf shot but doesn't go away at all.Gives me a very stiff neck and extra dry mouth. Putting warm compresses on them seem to make them recede temporarily.I've got one more shot hope that will be the end of it. .
Hi, I'm hoping for some help with the following problem, as having just finished a course of antibiotics ( Azithromycin 500) for a suspected "lymph node infection" which apparently is pressing on the Trigeminal nerve. I am still finding the pain unbearable, & feel its only subsided slightly.
Try putting you finger on the bone just under the ear, open and shut the jaw, does it feel funny, hurt, or make a "cracking" noise. Are you ears plugged of feel full. There are so many TMJ symptoms, I can not begin to list them, but, it sure can cause jaw pain, in fact, it can sometimes even cause upper chest pain. I would see an orthodontist, he will run some tests on the jaw area and be able to tell you more of what is going on.
my doctor checked me for std's and everything she didnt what it was. Ive now put it down to swollen glands because i cant think of anything else! Does anyone else had more that one at different times?
My glands in my neck (just under jaw bone and down side of neck) have had a dull ache for the last week or so. i havent acquired a sore throat and feel fine in myself although sometime have had headaches as well. Today the right side of my groin has started a dull ache as well...could these be connected due to the glands in the areas... no other glands appear to aching (armpit and stomach) I have just been taking ibuprofen for the time being.
It sounds more like Tetanus than anything else. The stiffness, swollen glands, etc. Did you step on a nail? Have you cut yourself with a knife? An axe? Something rusty? You might need to see a doctor about a Tetanus shot.
I have continued to feel more fatigued, nauseated and continue to lose weight (lost 20 pounds in last 3 months), also continuing swollen, painful glands all around neck and under ears and jaw (for over 3 months and worsening), and bone pain continuing (pain meds help some, but not for long). Dr. did blood tests and there are two types of irregular red blood cells in my blood, and also a high percentage of irregular or reactive lymphs.
My hyoid problem started with a REALLY BAD cough, not with the flu. No swollen glands. My pain radiates from the hyoid area and upper throat area and goes into the left side of my mouth, throat, and tongue...no pain radiates to the right side of any of those.
left neck swollen cheek, swollen headaches and ear pain dizziness and fatigue.
I get a build up of wax in my left ear from it being so swollen and the jaw bone connecting to my ear is sore and swollen as well. Im being told by GP it's stress and I am grinding my teeth at night and clenching my jaw. I had a crown put in last year and all these problems have started after that although not sure if there is a connection ....
I went to a neck doctor and he said it's normal and sent me on my way, but for months I've been discovering more and more of these BB size lumps under my skin, some of them I can pinch and feel, some are hard and some are softer. Keep in mind these cannot be seen, only felt. I have no clue what these are. It seems like all the time I'm discovering more on my neck or around my shoulder and collar bone, and I don't notice them anywhere else on my body.
I was not able to get an appointment within that 10 day period and about 14 days later if Flared up again this time with massively swollen glands that were hard as rocks and unable to open my jaw or swallow. Went back to the ER and same thing. I got an appointment on the 11th day after taking the Bactrim DS my jaw which was still swollen and stiff started to become even more swollen again.
Hi All I have had painful lymph nodes under my jaw and infront of my ears both sides for about a week, Also feel some discomfort under armpits. I cannot locate any swollen glands. I have been to the doctor and he didnt know what was wrong. I have been regularly monitoring my temperature, which is normal. The pain is a dull ache, and I feel throbbing and pulsating in the nodes under my jaw. Today I have a very sore left side of neck, I dont know if it is more lymph pain or muscle pull.
But then after a few months I had extremely severe pain form between the tooth and my maxillary sinus on that side, and then pain back to my jaw, and below my jaw down my neck with swollen lymph nodes. Plus when I bite down that tooth and only that tooth hurts. Well, the dentist took new bite wing X-rays and didn't see an abscess or anything and gave me Amoxil which completely elminated the severe pain in 5 days...
If I look at it in the mirror it is swollen under my jaw but if I put even a little pressure on my thyroid in the center just above my collar bone then the whole neck pops out on that side starting at my jaw. It doesn't do that at all on the other side and I had origionally had swelling on both side of my thyroid. Ok, ok i hear myself saying this to you and obviously, I am being ridiculous not to call the endo. I am calling him now and I will keep you posted. Thanks, for being there!
We have yet to see if there is a solid mass the size of a hens egg which was under her jaw before it started to grow, and to ascertain whether that initial lump was a calcified lump from a previous abcess or a swollen gland. Will let you know final outcome. cheers.
I woke up one morning and my jaw was clicking like crazy. All my glands in my face and neck were swollen. My jaw muscles were swollen too, which is what was causing my jaw to click since it couldn't open and close correctly. Stop stressing. The stress will make it worse. Also, you may have allergies. Take some antihistamine and see if anything subsides. Also the white patches that look like tonsillitis, I was told by the eye ear and nose doc that everyone has patches.
