Jaw sore to touch

Common Questions and Answers about Jaw sore to touch


Avatar f tn This condition is called meralgia paraesthetica which manifests itself as pain, tingling or burning sensation of outer thigh. It may occur due to injury to nerve either due to spinal deformity or along its path to thigh by any ligament or tendon stretch, excessive tight clothing (therefore it is also called "jeans disease"), diabetic neuropathy or damage to nerve after surgery etc. Another nerve which may cause pain in legs is sciatic nerve compression.
497990 tn?1210076345 My hair has thinned and it only feels better when pressure is put on both sides of my head like a vice. It has moved to around my ears. The muscles or ligaments are sore to touch. My jaw has become sore and hurts to try and hold it open. It cracks when I open it slightly. There are bones right under my earlobe on each side, right next to my jaw (they feel roundish) that hurt to touch.
Avatar m tn So I have a lump or inflammation of what I presume is a gland between my large neck muscle and under the back of my jaw line. Last week I was ok but developed a sore throat and headaches late last week and by the weekend I had a sore throat, vomited once and developed a sore neck and this lump all in the space of a day. I dunno what it is but if I turn my neck now it's not that painful but before it felt like I had strained a muscle in my neck and the lump itself is quite tender to touch.
Avatar f tn Alright so I woke up today and found that I have sore spot or soft spot on my head. If you touch it, it hurts. My health history is pretty complicated. I have Psoriasis, TMJ, an out of aligned jaw (I'm getting corrective jaw surgery soon for it), a very minor case of arthritis (it's off and on), and some other more minor issues. I've also had off and on (more on than off) headaches the last couple of months.
Avatar n tn I am a 25 year old female with a history of tmj (but usually only the right side bothers me) and cold sores (always in the right corner of my lips). Two days ago I woke up feeling like someone had smacked me with a phone book on the right side of my face. It felt bruised and tingly...kind of sensitive to the touch, but there was no bruising no swelling so temperature change and it went from above my right eyebrow across to my temple and down under my jaw line. Even my eye hurt a little.

Avatar f tn I have found magnesium helps with my TMJ. I used to be able to crack my jaw so loud you could hear it at the other end of the house! lol With magnesium....you need to be very close to hear it now. Anyway, I was magnesium deficient and had a lot of symptoms including light sensitivity and anxiety. You might want to give magnesium a try. Especially if you suffer from stress and anxiety! Avoid magnesium oxide. 4% absorption. I tried it.. meh pretty useless. I like magnesium citrate.

Avatar f tn I've got a hard bone type lump, that's painless on my scalp, behind my ear. I've have terrible headaches on the same side too. Mostly in my temple area that radiates into my cheekbone and jaw. The skin is sore to touch as well. Feels like it's bruised. The headaches are horrendous. Facial twitching and jaw jerking. My neck feels like there's pressure on the left side (same side as lump and headache). I've got small tender lumps in both armpits.
Avatar f tn My jaw bacame sore in the beginning I thought I was having a bad toothache and had my dr call in an antibiotic but it didn't help. I guess its because our joints are loosening up and that causes the pain. Even in our jaws. Mine didn't last long maybe a week in a half.
1724105 tn?1309577226 my left neckand undeneath my clavical have been sore for 2 weeks, it isn't sore to touch and seems swollen. It seems to radiate to my jaw and ear and the back of my head?
Avatar m tn When I woke up the back of my jaw line leading down to my neck (in the joint of my jaw and neck) was really sore. Yes, it happened, literally, over night. The soreness subsided two days later, but now there is what feels like a large lump. I noticed in the above message that if it is "movable" than there is less to worry about (maybe), and it does feel like its attached to a vein or something (but not just floating around).
Avatar f tn When I open my mouth to chew my left side of my jaw hurts up near the ear, I do get a lot o colds and sore throats, would it be a tumor tho?
673940 tn?1232411764 , now i have tmj,and tn, i will be seeing a maxo surgeon next week and my ENT says that i have to have my mental nerve damaged{at last} and my jaw needs to be realigned,does this mean that they will break it first?
Avatar m tn t sure if it should still be sore. I should say it is only sore when I touch up there.
Avatar n tn just wanted to update and let you know that i ended up going to the er on easter morning. my jaw had swollen so bad that i couldn't shut my mouth. the swelling had started on the inside of my jaw as well as the outside. it got so sore that i couldn't even stand for an ice pack to touch my jaw. they did a ct and found out that it was an abscess. it was 1 inch by 3/8 inch big. they gave me iv rocephin and drained the abscess.
Avatar f tn It feels like a bruise, has a very slight throbbing and is a little sore to the touch. So far I have noticed it for two weeks in which it has gotten slowly bigger.

Avatar m tn 2-3 mm) bumps that are hard to touch and are flesh colored, situated on my palatoglossal arch. It happens to be the very same side as the lymph node and the cold sore. I am not sure if I had them before or not, but I just noticed (or just paid attention) to them. Here is a picture (throat pic, beware): https://prnt.sc/lyqkkk The I read again that such bumps are a sign of throat cancer and now am I even worried.
