Jaw pain earache and sore throat

Common Questions and Answers about Jaw pain earache and sore throat


Avatar f tn It has been more than a month since I noticed that my submandibular gland began to swell and slight pain began. I went to the ER and they gave me 10 days of amoxicillen and said that my throat looked slightly red. However, I have taken all of the medication, the redness was gone within a couple of days, but now the pain has worsened, even to the point of causing a burning in my jaw by my ear, as it does if I laugh when I have something sour in my mouth.
Avatar f tn That was a week ago. Now I have a sore throat on that side, a lump behind my jaw just under the ear and a lump on the side of my throat. I also noticed a few red spots on my uvula. The pain is really severe in my head and ear. Has anybody any idea what might be wrong, it's starting to really worry me now. Thanks in advance.
Avatar f tn The next day I started noticing some neck discomfort, not really a sore throat, but stiffness and soreness in my throat area, when I turn my neck or put my head up or down to my chest. I thought maybe i might have an infection. I went back to my dentist yesterday, and he said he sees no sign of any infectiion, and that everything is healing nicely. I was glad, but am still concerned about the discomfort in my neck and throat area.
Avatar m tn I have had a Sore Throat for 5 weeks now.the Tonsils and back of throat are really sore!! Dr seems to think its nothing to worry about.Also my arms feel really week.Has anyone else suffered with a sore throat for this long??
Avatar n tn I have fullness under my ears and jaw pain. It comes and goes and can be one side or the other or both. Sometimes it is just uncomfortable and sometimes very painfull. Because I have a LOT of allergies I've always assumed that was what it was. I usually feel a little better after I take a benadryl and aspirin. However I would love this problem to stop occuring. I was given a nose spray by the allergist and this seems to help as well but not completly.
Avatar f tn ) My pain and lumps are primarily associated with my right side of my jaw ear and neck area. Often times the whole side of my neck feels tight and swollen on the inside and under my tongue as well. I feel like something is pressing on nerves causing tingling soreness and discomfort. I asked the doctor if antibiotics would be a consideration for treatment 6 months ago and I got the talk about the over use of antibiotics. I have still not taken any type of antibiotics in regard to this problem.
Avatar n tn I wonder if the constant sore throat might be caused by GERD [gastro reflux]. GERD often occurs with heartburn, but not always. A gastroenterologist could diagnose. See: http://www.aboutgerd.org/gerdother.html What Else can we Attribute to GERD? "Sore Throat, Cough Awakening with a sore throat and cough is not always a harbinger of the common cold. Nocturnal reflux, especially after late-night food or alcohol intake, may reach the throat without awakening the individual.
Avatar f tn Its been going on for 3 weeks and started with a sore throat and ear pain. The past couple weeks my tongue has been swollen and feels as if I have canker sores only I don't see any. I'm terrified. I've been to the doctor twice already and they keep telling me its a virus. I have another appointment in a week but its driving me crazy. I'm terrified its also some sort of cancer. I'm a 32 year old former smoker. I haven't had a cigarette in about 8 months.
Avatar n tn She took CT scan to hospital for further analysis and determined I had a throat cyst. Went to her recommended ENT and he performed surgery and removed small throat cyst and viral wart. Still feeling persists. I had an MRI but results aren't back yet. Gastro doctor will do an duodenoscopy this Tuesday to rule out reflux and I am having my uvula shortened because right now it looks like it is touching the back of my throat.
Avatar m tn Let me first say that I had a sore throat/stuffy nose about 2 weeks ago and took some Halls cough drops every 2 hours as directed for about a week. I had a mini canker sore on my lip but that went away and now i have another mini canker sore on my lip but that's not an issue. I believe these canker sores are from the cough drops. I'm pretty sure I read that these cough drops can cause the canker sores. My main issue is now I have this painful bump in the back of my throat/mouth/tongue.
Avatar n tn Drinking plenty of fluids (hot water can be beneficial) and sucking sweets(candies, which prevents your throat and muscous from drying, can also help. i believe the sore throat is caused by the stuck muscous on your throat drying. If I look at my throat with a flashlight, I can see thin, frothy muscous running down my throat (I sometime feel like I got a piece of rope stuck on my throat), and when I spit it up, it is clear and frothy.
Avatar f tn hi about 1 week ago i went to a new dentist because i had 2 broken teeth #19, #30 said i did not need root cannel on 19 put on a temp crown i had some pain and soreness for 3-4 days then severe pain ,fever swelling, earache, jaw pain , sore throat on day 6,7 i was already on amoxicillian for 1 week went back to the dr. he gave me a root cannel on #19 still very painful 24 hours later still the same symptoms not as sore by jaw is there something else going on?
Avatar n tn I too am having problems with ear pain, stiff neck, jaw pain, sinus pain and it all started with a fever and flu like symptoms. I am scheduled for a root canal on Thursday. I will let you know if it has all been related to my teeth. My dentist told me that the root of this tooth is very close to my sinuses. I felt like I had a sinus infection and an ear infection. The fever was two days after I had a crown put in.
Avatar f tn Tell her you just had a biopsy under your jaw and you've since developed a sore throat and earache. Ask her if she thinks it's related to the biopsy or lump. Hopefully she can put your mind at ease and maybe give you something to help clear it up.
Avatar n tn There's no lump/lymph node swelling, but when I press deeply in the affected area, it seems that there's some tenderness. I would *not* describe this as a sore throat. I've had those before -- the pain feels like it's not in the throat, just deep in the neck, on the side near the ear. An ENT has been treating me for Sinusitis for a few months -- have had 2 antibiotic courses. The congestion symptoms aren't that bad, but they aren't gone either.
Avatar n tn P and they all say I am breathing when infact I am holding my breath and the noise is just echoing out of my open mouth, very frustrating seeing I have had chronic neck/jaw/chest pain for 2 and a half years and have been unable to work and lead a normal life, my local G.P has refered me to numerous departments at the hospital over the 2 and a half years from head and neck specialist to nueromuscular.
Avatar n tn I sympathise with you! I have had sore throat and earache for 18 months.MRI has ruled out any problems with brain etc so it has come down to the Eustachian tube. I see an ENT man next week. A neurologist gave me a script for Epilin (sodium valproate) and I have had to build up the dosage gradually. I am now on 2 in the AM and 3 in the PM. Although deafness has increased badly in the last couple of weeks, the earache has diminshed, which is great.
Avatar m tn hello, my symptoms are/were: headaches,jaw pain,sore teeth,sore throat going on 3 months,flushed face but no fever (will throw in slight burning tongue) my gp has seen my throat and says it is normal but prescribed prednisone and flonase for what he thinks are allergies gp and chiro think headaches related to spine issues which have passed since regularly going to chiro about 2 months ago dentist has been telling me for about 2 years that i grind my teeth.
Avatar n tn ~2 weeks later I presented with severe swollen glands, earache, and sore throat, fatique, low grade fevers etc. No sign of local infection. Sick with the above symptoms for over 2 1/2 months with that same feeling of spaciness or head fog and that something wasn't right with the implant. The dental implant area hurt and I finally had the dental implant taken out. Swollen glands, earache and sore throat went away almost immediately BUT then other symptoms started.
745568 tn?1232853401 And then a year ago, the roof of my mouth, especially the left side would get really sore and painful. I don't feel pain in my eye but my left jaw and cheekbone hurt. Also, I've been getting these sores on the inside of my left nostril. They seem to be different then the cold sores and they take forever to heal. I do grind my teeth and had my dentist try to adjust my bite and I also suffer from migraines. Dentist seemed at a loss to what it is. Anyone have anymore insight out there?
1665952 tn?1303171271 Dull earache with occasional sharp pains in ear and my throat is just kicking with pain. My jaw and teeth never hurt. I have always had pops in both jaws, but no pain. I'm in the beginning stages of treatment. Doc told me that stress makes it worse. GO to see a ENT. get checked out and go ahead and start dealing with this.
Avatar f tn His test proves he was negative at the time you had sex with him. All your tests are well past the window period and false negatives won't repeat themselves constantly past the window period. You are conclusively hiv negative.
Avatar n tn I then went to a more progressive ENT in 2005 who did an ethmoidectomy (removed the sinuses from between my eyes)and I really thought my problems were over. My pain and pressure were completely gone and I felt great. Until.....the beginning of the year I started having sinus infection problems with dizzyness and feeling totally lousey. A week and a half ago I was on my 3rd sinus infection when I finally went to a friend who is a Nurse Practitioner and had her culture my sinuses.
1554262 tn?1374243601 Mine starts with kind of a burning in my stomach and then it even goes into my neck and jaw and chest and the pain is horrible. I always have a bottle of water with me anywhere I am, even church. It's the only way to relieve it. I had a bad one last night. I live in fear that one of these days the water won't work. I can't find anyone who knows what it is but I am glad I'm not alone in this.
Avatar n tn Went to the doctor who gave me anitibiotics (cehpalexin) as I did have a sore throat and he believed I had a bacterial infection and was feeling under the weather. The drug made me feel dizzier (as it is a common side effect of the drug). I just finished the course of antibiotics but still feel dizzy, foggy, etc. I am making another doctors appointment to rule out any medical conditions, but I think it might be anxiety and want it to stop.
Avatar n tn At this moment as I write this I feel fine, the symptoms of the ulcer/GERD have retreated and have not bothered me so far. The only pain is the pain I get in the back of my head. But you guys have given me some great input, thank you. If anyone else has some suggestions would appreciate it as it may take some time for my doctor to make room for me.
797873 tn?1265740119 I also get thursty If I dont drink water. I start to get a dry throat and mouth... If i drink anything else that is not water my breath gets worse.. please help!
Avatar n tn It started as sinus headaches 2 months ago, then it turned into pressure all over my face and an earache with jaw pain. That was 3 weeks ago. Now it is jaw pain, dizziness, and sinus pressure. My ENT had a CT done and said my sinuses are basically clear but I have 2 small polyps in a cavity and teeth growing in y nasal cavity?...Apparently this is normal? But now I am severely depressed and anxious too. He seems to think all of this stemed from stress so he gave me valium.
