977806 tn?1249070946 Took 2nd shot this past Wednesday. Have actually had jaw pain off and on but really thought it was a dental problem but am thinking more along the lines of Sx now because it is in both jaws. I emailed my doctor earlier today. Has anyone else had jaw pain. Both jaws have been effected and right now it is throbbing a bit. I emailed to ask my doctor if I should go and see a dentist anyway even though it may be due to the drugs.
1437229 tn?1296073620 I have been waking in the morning, and found that while sleeping I have been clenching my jaw to the point that I have pain in my temples. Does anyone else struggle with this? I am concerned that my teeth are shiting because of the force of the bite.
Avatar f tn for about a week now i am having wierd jaw pain. it starts in the back of my mouth on the lower left side. after about ten minutes it radiates all the way to the middle of my front teeth to the top of my head making the whole left side on my head throb with pain. i apparently sleep on that side of my face and it only takes about ten minutes of sleeping before i wake up in pain and what feels like restless leg syndrom becouse of the pain.
Avatar n tn I had my wisdom teeth (all of them, and they all were impacted) removed in March. Since then, I have experienced the same kind of jaw pain I had before the surgery. It's almost as if the teeth were never removed. It's not a consistent pain, but it comes and goes for at least a few days out of every week. It's mostly just annoying, but it can get pretty severe and it is often accompanied by earaches and headaches.
Avatar f tn I am unable to open my mouth more than a certain extend, not only because the pain is terrible, but also because it justs doesn't open. The jaw pain is coupled with ear pain and sometimes I feel pain when I am chewing also. I visited a dentist who reached the conclusion (after taking an xray) that my wisdom tooth MAY be the reason of all this, because it has an abnormal direction, pushing the other teeth.
Avatar n tn About 2 weeks ago however it became EXTREMLY sore, not only when opening my mouth but now just at a relaxed position...the pain is constant chewing, talking, opening, sleeping, walking, eating, swimming...ALL THE TIME!! my ear on the side of which my jaw is hurting is now also contributing to the pain, it feels like something is pushing on my tragus and deep down into my ear!!........
Avatar f tn Since early hours this morning ive had really bad Tooth and jaw pain then the pain went to the bottom of my jaw and the top of my head then it stopped then I had a bad jaw and earache then that stopped then I had a pain on the top bit of my nose to my head and so on, I got told that jaw pain in pregnancy but ive never met anyone who has had It, is this Normal it not becuse im in alot of pain and paracetamol never works!!
Avatar f tn At the same time it shot up my neck on left side wrapped around the back on my neck and settled in my upper jaw joint in front of my right ear. That hurt! The spot by my ear in the jaw joint was horrible. I did have mild sweating. Odd thing was I was talking when it happened stopped mid sentence and my husband said I was pale I sat in chair with a thud. I looked stunned he said. I tried to get my husband to take me to ER or call 911.
Avatar m tn I have a strange sensation along my jaw it is like a strong pulse and dull pain. It moves around, along the top of the jaw, underneath the jaw. Comes and goes. I had this about 6 years ago for a few weeks, then it went away, it came back about a month ago, once again lasted a week then left. Both these times I was under stress/anxiety and I put it down to that. This time, it has come back again, but I am not stressed or worried, So I have no idea what it is.
Avatar n tn 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. anyway, some areas for you to consider and check ;-) good luck, and don't give up!
Avatar f tn Maybe your grinding your teeth when sleeping? My mom would complain about her jaw hurting/sore frequently, then I caught her grinding her teeth while napping...
Avatar n tn Over the course of a few weeks the pain started to subside and my jaw began to relax... Heat packs on my jaw to soothe the pain... He also suggested certain exercises to strengthen my neck and back muscles because they were weak from all the tension... I also did acupuncture... It also helped to calm and relax my muscles... Good luck!
Avatar f tn its sleep paralysis, i am narcoleptic and this hapeens to me 2-3 times a day. its a pain in the butt. Its your R.E.M. sleep state, goes into full dream mode, instead of allowing your body to normally relax and fall asleep. I wake after a 10 minute ordeal and feel ill and my eyelids are red and so is my chest. I am weak and it takes me a few minutes to get with it. Sometimes then i go back to sleep for a nice nap. My mother had this when she was younger but she isnt narcoleptic.
Avatar n tn For the past 20 years, this has not been a major problem, but in the past 6 months, I've experienced increasing jaw pain and tension during sleep. I've tried a night guard, and I've tried different stretches and neck exercises, but I am unable to find a neutral resting position for my tongue and jaw that I can maintain while sleeping. Are there any exercises recommended? Any therapists that specialize in this odd problem? Thanks for any advice.
Avatar f tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! The jaw pain can be due to TMJ and this causes earache, and tension in jaw with cracking sounds and even headaches. The other thing that you should look at is sleep disorders. Especially since your routine is now different, you may not have been able to set the sleep pattern according to it and hence not able to get the requisite amount of deep sleep. Consult a sleep specialist regarding this.
1125093 tn?1260368748 For the last few days though, I've been getting what I can only describe as an occasional shooting pain at the top of my jaw or bottom ear area. It's not even major painful, just a little. It can be either ear, can last few a couple of seconds or 10,20,30 seconds. No set pattern to it. It then just goes away. I think because I'm very conscious of it, I'm making it out to be worse. Does anyone else suffer this? Is it another symptom?
621386 tn?1221536083 After 7 months of symptoms similar to yours - I am still not sure if neck problems cause the jaw pain (and facial pain and ear pain lower back pain) or if TMJ disorder causes it all. What is helping: -Wearing a neck brace (inexpensive - get it at the pharmacy) seems to help. Espcially at the end of the day when my neck is tired. -Sleeping on my back. I used to sleep on my stomach - arms and lega akimbo. I think this put a lot of pressure on my neck and jaw.
Avatar f tn and I have a scratchy kind of cough often (this is a symptom within the last 6 months or so..the coughing wasn't bad before). I have had tremendous ear and jaw pain and my primary care doctor referred me to someone for TMJ..turns out it's not TMJ. Now for the past few weeks I have had such blurred vision that I won't drive at night. Also, for the past two years my main symptoms have been extreme fatigue and insane sweating...lol.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn A constant ache in the jaw, sometimes fuzzy ears. - that's my jaw been sore to touch my cheeks near my ears, feeling bruised. Sleeping on my side, eating chewy sweets and foods like toffee, oral sex & stress make it worse. Stress really does effect it, that supprised me but its something to do with clenching your jaw or grinding your teeth.
