Pain in throat and jaw

Common Questions and Answers about Pain in throat and jaw


Avatar m tn Sometimes there is associated pain to insufficient supply of blood/oxygen to heart cells that is usually chest pain, but sometimes there is shoulder, back and jaw pain. Your age almost rules out any occluded vessels, and if you had a decrease of blood pumped into circulation with a valve disorder, you almost certainly would have other symptoms such as shortness of breath, muscle fatigue, chest pain, etc.
Avatar n tn I am 30 and recently I feel a hursh pain in may jaw and teeth and the pain continue through my throat. ( it causes burning in my throat. The pain is constant and it doesn’t go away completely with painkillers. And recently the top of my fingers get really hot it is like that I feel something really hot.
Avatar n tn I know many people with this and it can cause headaches, neck pain, ear pain, all kinds of pain in your head/face area. First I would talk with your regular doctor then maybe a referral, if your doctor agrees, to someone who specializes in TMJ disorders. Please remember this is just a guess, so see your family doctor first OK. Good luck and let me know how it goes. Take care.
Avatar m tn This was 5 days ago. However, I still develop a swelling in my left throat below the jaw when I try to swallow food. This is accompanied by a dull pain. Liquid food doesn't hurt that much but as soon as I eat solid food, the swelling starts up all over again. Cold compress seems to help in that it brings down the swelling and also soothes the pain. I am worried about what this could be. Can anybody help? Thanks.
389345 tn?1209322565 I went to my pcp and she told me to take ibproffen and hot and cold compresses for a week and if not better she wants to send me to another dr. to fit me for a jaw slint to were to bed at night. She said that this would allign my jaw again. My diagnoses was TMJ. Its been weeks now and still not better.hurts to open my mouth so far and can't bite down all the way. Anyways thanks for your advice.
Avatar m tn My jaw, only on the right side, is swollen. It hurts to open my mouth when eating and it feels very uncomfortable like it is going to pop. The right side of my throat is sore (but it doesn't feel like strep at all). Everything on the right side of my face feels swollen but my gums and teeth aren't in pain. I Play basketball but haven't been hit in that area and I am very concerned. Any ideas?
Avatar f tn Recently I found a small soft lump in my throat under my chin at my jaw line. I have had a sore throat and then I notice the lump. My sore throat went away but the lump is still there. Sometimes I have pain in my throat near the lump but it only lasts a second and then goes away. It's on the right side of my face, nothing on the left. Should I be alarms or does it just sound like swollen lymph node?? Help!!
Avatar m tn I can not find anywhere that mentions throat pain. I do not clench my jaw or grind my teeth, so not sure why they think it is TMJ. The pain kept me up all night and was horrible through out the days until I learned to eat and chew and a certain way. Now with the throat hurting I am wondering if it is really TMJ? Any suggestions?
Avatar f tn For about 2 weeks I have been having a low grade pain in my right jaw, seems to go into my neck at times. Ibuprophen does help. The reason I am concerned is that my father passed away from throat cancer that had gone into his jaw. His was a very disfiguring, 3 years of more aggressive surgeries. I have not made a Drs appt yet, but intend to soon.
Avatar f tn ve also been having swelling and throbbing pain on the left side from the base of my neck up to my jaw, under my jaw and all the way to my left ear which occasionally aches. Sometimes my throat feels thick, kind of like its closing and makes breathing difficult. I never feel a difference in size or anything from my left side to right but all of the symptoms are on the left and it gets very uncomfortable. It also hurts after I've been pushing on it to see if I can feel lumps.
Avatar n tn i have heard that a sinus infection can cause pain in the upper teeth. can it also cause pain in the lowe jaw/ teeth?
Avatar f tn I have had jaw pain for many days, only on one side, now i have ear and throat pain on the same side, and my jaw hurts so bad, like I had been punched (or so I assume) really har din the jaw. It hurts to eat, and I have pain in my ear and a sore throat.....can anyone give me advise? Bad sinuses? Time to go the Dr?
Avatar m tn i been having sum pain in my jaw by my ear been having my lymph nodes swollen for over a month...went to the doctor but was told could be allergies...of wat i know of never really had allergies....also sum neck stiffness...
14726666 tn?1448779692 It did not get better and I was in constant pain in my sinus and lower jaw. The doctor could not see anything wrong with the tooth and referred me to doc for sinus infection. The ent sent me back to the dentist. Finally my dentist recommended pulling the tooth. That was done in May. I am still in constant pain with no relief and the pain now seems to be more on the lower jaw and at the back of my throat. I have a constant sore throat only on the left side.
Avatar f tn -conscious relaxation of throat -always better in the morning -massage It seems to have gotten worse recently, not necessarily the throat itself but the pain in the chest and rest of the left side. It is so bad it is interfering with my normal exercise routine and, needless to say, it is very stressful and worrisome.
Avatar n tn I had my remaining 3 wisdom teeth removed in late February of this year. I had an infection on the right side and was given penicillin (ammoxicillin) again. (this has happened at least 6 times in the past year, be it from a tooth that was infected or an UTI) And the penicillin always gives me more issues. Anyway, over the past 3 days I have had gradually increasing pain in my lower left jaw and throat. I couldn't tell if it was a particular tooth or if it was my jaw.
Avatar f tn Over the last few weeks I have had a continual sore throat, intermittant ear ache and jaw pain that is now constant. Dr put me on antibiotics for ten days but that didn't work, so wondering if this could be related to Epstein Barr. Has anyone else experienced the jaw pain and ongoing sore throat? Thanks. I am concerned because I had breast cancer four years ago, so hoping my current problems are just Epstein Barr.
Avatar f tn Whatever it is has my throat hurting when I swallow ans feels like junk in my throat. My jaw hurts to open it and it wont ope all the way. I have a headache too. What is going on?

Avatar f tn i have had similar pain and heard a commercial for actonel and they said it could cause pain in the jaw and chest. i had both but didn't consider it might be related. i stopped taking the drug - so far i still have the pain.
1302515 tn?1272990475 i stopped using because i felt my nose changing inside and i had constantly a sore throat and i felt my ears sore. 2 months have past and i still have a sore throat and i still presure my teeth and jaw. I went to the doctor but i did not tell him i was a user, i told him i had a constant sore throat.
Avatar f tn So, since Monday of this week, I have had this weird pain and I can't figure out where it is coming from. It is on my left side and sometimes it feels as though it's in my throat and other times it feels like my jaw, and other times it feels like it's in the back under my tongue. It hurts the worst when i'm swallowing or talking. It also hurts to yawn, cough, or sneeze. If I'm just sitting, it doesn't hurt at all.
