Avatar f tn I feel like my head is about to explode! One side of my head, face, jaw, and neck is hurting! Only one side. The pain is behind my eye, my ear, my cheek, my jaw and my neck. It hurts worst when I lay down or bend down. It has been like this since yesterday morning. Do you think this sounds like sinus pressure or something more serious? If so do you think pseudoephedrine will work? By the way.......my meds are metoprolol 25mg bid and lexapro 5mg daily.
Avatar f tn on the right side of my scalp (down), right side of the face (there is pinched trigeminal nerve), right cheekbone, jaw bone (sinusitis maxillaries), right neck muscle (levator scapula) and goes over to the right shoulder muscle Supraspinatus and nerve there. I was told from one man (alternative medecine) that all comes from the nerve on the right shoulder. In my case is also my shoulder blade swollen. It is long way from the right shoulder until right eye.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have been experiencing a sharp wave of pain (every 10-20 seconds) on the left side of my head. It feels a like an electric pulse which travels down to my face and jaw. The top of my head (left side) is also a bit senstive to touch. No history of migraines or anything similar. And generally, I feel fine. I'm breastfeeding, so can't take anything other than paracetemol which isn't helping. A visit to the doctor needed?

Avatar n tn I don't know if I'm lucky, especially on the infertility side of things, but I sure know that PCOS is no fun at all!! Thanks for your suggestions and replies. I will keep you posted!
Avatar f tn I have previously had a lump on this side of my face, but it was dismissed by my dentist and my oral surgeon as a minor swelling/potential abcess (though it was never diagnosed as such and that lump was on the right side of my face but in the middle of the cheek and again, not affiliated with the teeth or jaw). Can anyone advise as to what this may be or give me advise as to what I should do next?
Avatar n tn I just went to my oral surgeon for some swelling on one side of my face. He told me it was a "hard edema" on my jaw line. He said there wasn't really anything I could do about it and it would go away in a couple of months. He recommeneded moist heat. I was wondering if anyone had any other tips/otc meds to speed up this process. Searching on the internet has been fruitless and I would like to get this healed up ASAP.
Avatar m tn About twice a month, I get an excrutiating pain on the right side of my face. There is lots of pressure on my upper right teeth, and swelling all along the rigth side of my nose. The only thing that makes me feel better is a warm rag on the right side of my face. After about two hours, I can hear it start to crackle and loosen, and the pressure goes away. The pain is so bad it literally makes me want to kill myself. This has been going on for about 3 years. I've seen an ENT Dr.
Avatar n tn Take one and put it on top of your lower right teeth and then put the other one on top of the lower left teeth. Rest your top teeth on top of it. Don't bite on it just rest on it. Leave it there for about 5 minutes and make sure you are relaxed. When you remove them if your facial muscles feel better it maybe that your TMJ is having a dysfunction. You will need to go to a dentist either way. They may need to make you a splint that will help with the pain. *Be careful with prescription meds.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn To massage the masseter muscles on each side of your jaw, place your thumb inside your mouth and squeeze the thick muscle in your cheek with your fingers. To massage the jaw muscles inside your mouth, use your index finger to probe and massage these spots. Moist heat or cold packs on the face, vitamin supplements, or biofeedback are useful for some people. Usually people find a method that brings relief by trial and error. Consult an ENT specialist.
Avatar n tn I have severe jaw pain that turns into a really severe headache. I feel it in my face and neck and jaw. It starts usually on the left side of jaw and goes everywhere from there. Even when I bend over I feel pain in the head. I've been to the doctor, neurosugeon, chiropractor and seeing a dentist. Nothing is helping. I dont have popping or grinding. I tried to wear a mouth gaurd and only seems to make things worse.
Avatar n tn It has been a week now and I have such terrific intense pain right in the area where my jaw connects together in front of my ear. Each time I open my mouth, or move my lower jaw side to side it sends piercing pain through my jaw radiating up what feels like it is in the middle of my eardrum, really piercing relentless pain. I cannot see swelling as before.
Avatar n tn Only when I eat, though. Something in the left side of my face swells up and when I touch it, it feels almost numb. This has been going on for more than 6 mos. But, now just last night, my jaw has started hurting. I can forget about yawning b/c the more I open it the more it hurts. I can eat but my bites have to be small. This is really wierd to me. I don't know where to go for this. Dentist, Oral DR, Ear, nose, mouth? What does this sound like and where should I go?
Avatar n tn I've been having these symptoms for about 7 months- pain on one side of face from cheek/jaw area to my ear and down into neck. I had tooth pulled pain didn't go away, went back to dentist, nothing found. Been to regular doctor several times, first for throat infection with fever and antibiotics had little effect. Pain not cured by pain killers. Lymph in neck is swollen and does not go away. Face started to swell.
Avatar n tn My dentist who specializes in TMJ prescribe patch to place side of my jaw where the pain is. Oh, man it really do work. the patch is called Flector patch (diclofenac epolamine topical patch). after applying this patch I was able to eat and sleep.. Change patch once every 12 hours. These patch are very expensive but it worth it. Believe or not the vertigo has subsided and the headaches. But keep a patch with me at all time for just in case.
Avatar m tn I have a strange feeling on the left side of my face. It seems to be tight and slightly swollen most days and some days my neck feels tight down from my ear. There isn't any pain just the strange tight and swollen feeling. I have been to GP and Dentist neither really have an idea after my CT and X-rays only showed what they think was a small lymph node 7mm below my ear and jaw area. I have been on a course of antibotics and steroids but they have stopped the symptoms.
Avatar m tn My friend said He was on one of the popular tv channel in indonesia, and my friend asked me to see him on youtube by typing "Sri Daren" on the search panel. On the video he cured old homeless people and in my opinion he is amazing.
