Sore jaw hurts to chew

Common Questions and Answers about Sore jaw hurts to chew


Avatar n tn It feels sore in my left side of the mouth, it hurts when I try to open it, when I chew... and even when I put my tongue out. I remember before this happened, like a month or two, I had a cold, and I kinda had a hard time hearing, the inside of the ear would hurt and it felt itchy. And from time to time I would get like a sharp pain between my jaw and throat. Right in the line that the two meet... it still kinda sore if I poke it.

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?
Avatar m tn So me and my friends we were having a good time, and we were chewing on binkis one night that we found from a friend. And then next night I was chewing on this watter bottle cap and my mouth kinda hurt. Like the sides of my cheeks were a little raw, and my tongue hurt. But everything's fine and all besides the back of the right side of my tongue hurts so bad still, it hurts to swallow anything.
1679695 tn?1304716141 It could be TMJ Dysfunction. The TMJ is the joint that joins your lower jaw to your upper jaw. You can easily tell if this is the problem if the area in front of your ears is tender to the touch. This can actually be helped by seeing a chiropractor.
Avatar f tn I have had a consistant sore throat, bit of ear pain, swollen glands and jaw ache, plus sharp pain in jaw when trying to eat, for over a month now. Dr gave me antibiotics but it hasn't helped. Has anyone else experienced this please?

Avatar n tn Had root canal done through crown 8mths ago after experiencing cold sensitivity extreme. Started hurting beneath it and up into lower jaw, up to ear. Didn't hurt to chew on it, but now it does, (after 6wks). Dentist took out of occlusion, been back to endodontist, he says root canal looks good on xray. Have been on Penicillin 500 for 5 days, pain subsided, but came back. I am a clencher and grinder, and wear a nightguard.
3123268 tn?1342176937 A few days ago, I realized the inside of my mouth was hurting. At first it felt like an odd pressure, almost like I had cut myself inside my mouth. Feeling around with my tongue, I did find two area that seemed to be very small chunks missing in the gum, but pushing on them or around them did not cause any pain. A few hours after this occurred, it started hurting when I swallowed. The odd thing about it though is that my whole throat didn't hurt (technically it wasn't even my throat).
Avatar n tn does this happen with just chewy candy or anything sweet? also are you sure its your teeth and not your jaw? chewy candies and gum can cause the jaw muscles to ache when chewing from overuse. if this does not go away in a few days check with your dentist.
1496683 tn?1289260362 During the day today, it also began to radiate into my face and jaw. I saw my doctor, today, and he said my ear looks fine, but my throat looked a little red. It dose hurt more when I chew. I could possible have a sore throat and not really notice it (I take high doses of pain medicines for an unrelated medical disorder), but I am not running a fever. Has anyone else experienced anything similar to this, or have any possible insight? The pain is very intense.
7934902 tn?1395538850 I am having the most EXCRUCIATING PAIN in my inner right ear. I have been trying to "pop" it, but it hurts BADLY when I try to do so, and makes high pitched noises. It hurts when I chew, and even if I TOUCH My back molars. If I massage my right temple, I can feel pain and pressure. My jaw hurts as well. I have NO IDEA what to do. Please give me advice. Thank you.

Avatar m tn You are do very welcome! I wish you all the best to find some relief and reassurance. I was at a loss with my symptoms : head aches in the temples, click/pop in the jaw when opening my mouth more than a few mm, jaw dislocating and clicking when I talk and chew. My jaw locking and being difficult to open. sometimes one side will lock or be stiff sometimes both. Finding steak so tiring to chew I'd give in and leave it - I love steak! A constant ache in the jaw, sometimes fuzzy ears.

Avatar f tn s chin yesterday playing flag football. It hurts to touch and is a bit swollen. It also hurts to open his jaw wide and a bit to chew. He was really tired last night but seems to be fine today. Should I be concerned and take him to the doctor? Thanks!
1217614 tn?1333510259 You have to press on muscles to look for sore points. Then massage these points with short strokes. 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.

Avatar f tn I have had three rounds of injections in the mandibular joint. I have a stiff jaw, hard to open wide enough to eat, sore but no visible swelling. Back in the 80's I was a chairside assistant and seem to remember something about gently chewing gum to exercise th e joint and get it to loosen. Is this still ok? How long can I expect it to take for my jaw to loosen up enough to eat with out difficulty?
Avatar f tn About a year ago, I started hearing a cracking noise in my jaw, and then about 3 months went away. But my right ear started to hurt. It feels tender and sore and it is only on my right ear. The pain seems to be concentrated around my ear. I am currently in Europe for six months, without health insurance. What should I do? For years and years, I would chew on hard items, like tops of water bottles ( I know gross habit )...and I have always been known to chew gum!
Avatar n tn The pain is now localized in that particular tooth. It is sore to push my tongue up against it or to chew on that side at all. I do have an appt with the dentist scheduled for next Tuesday. Any thoughts at what I might have going on? Thanks again and have a wonderful weekend! It's almost here.
5875644 tn?1375886365 About a week ago I developed a slight tooth ache on the lower left. It is a tooth that is broken, but since I had root canal done on it several years ago, there's no nerve in it. Then, a few days later I started to develop an ear ache in the same area. So now it hurts from my left ear down into my left jaw as well as a slight feeling of pressure above my left eye. I also can feel like post-nasal drip when it does hurt.
Avatar n tn But it really irritates my jaw to only be able to chew on one side. I get a lot of clicking and popping. How long should I wait before telling them it still hurts? It's a lot less sensitive than it was when it was first done. I couldn't chew at all on that side unless it was super soft and not hot or cold. But it's still very annoying that it hasn't gone away yet.
Avatar f tn I also can not chew to really eat anything so soup, yogurt, and water seems to be diet right now!
