Sore jaw right side

Common Questions and Answers about Sore jaw right side


Avatar n tn the right side of my jaw has been getting progressively worse over the past 3 days, at first it just felt like sore muscle, then it progressed to the point where it hurts to bite down, something like where my jaw was dislocated or something, but i have done nothing to provoke it, i took some ibuprofen and that seemed to help, my teeth feel fine, im 21 and ive never had a cavity, but this may be my first? im not sure what to think of it.

Avatar m tn For the past three days I have been getting this pain that starts from my right temple and goes down to the back of my right jaw. Never had this before.
2112219 tn?1334286044 I am a 27 year old female. Smoker (though trying to quit), but normalish health wise. For about 3 months now I have noticed a pain, right in the soft spot at the top of the jaw, directly behind my ear lobe. When it started it was infrequent and lasted only a few minutes and was only mildly annoying. Now it happens every day, pretty much all day, though it is worse at night. It is a pulsing/stabing pain.
Avatar f tn I think you can see that something in there is swollen, with yellow splotches mostly on the left side (well, right side in the picture), behind the teeth. (Also, not sure if the roof of my mouth looks normal?) This might not be important, but I want to mention everything, in case it might be connected in some way.
Avatar m tn can this cause my jaw muscles on that side to shrink. my jaw is quit sore and i notice that the muscles are smaller on that side.
Avatar f tn I have had numbness across most of the right side of my face up through my scalp and out to my ear for 2 months now. Occasionally, the numbness turns up elsewhere: in my right shoulder, today, for the first time, in the right side of my neck and my thigh. I am also getting especial tingling and occasional spasms around my jaw. I have no other symptoms.
Avatar f tn i am having some terrible pains in my right hand side jaw area and up the same side of my face is this tooth ache reason i'm asking is there is no specific pain in my teeth thanks
Avatar f tn For the last month I have had nonstop numbness on the left side of my head. My left jaw, neck and armpit get very sore and I have tightness or pins and needles in my left arm at different times. I get dizzy moments and night sweats some nights. I experience tinnitus in my right ear twice a day. I have been to a few doctors and had an MRI or my head and neck, X-ray of my chest, EKG, blood testing, and still nothing. I also have what looks like an enlarged artery in my left hand.
1527510 tn?1392301344 i thought at first i might have bumped my head or something because it was sore to touch but then it moved right down my left side to my jaw and hasnt went away since!
3123268 tn?1342176937 t even my throat). The far back roof of my mouth on my right side would hurt every time I swallowed or yawned, but not to chew, move my mouth around, or talk. The next day, it seemed better during the day. I definitely was not in as much pain. However, at night, it came back, and it was worse this time. An area above the back of molar hurt to put pressure on, and every time I swallowed.
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.
497990 tn?1210076345 There are bones right under my earlobe on each side, right next to my jaw (they feel roundish) that hurt to touch. I sometimes have like a flare up when it will be terribly painful (like a headache but more in my jaw and around ears) and the next day it feels like a giant bruise all around jaw, ears, and to almost corner of my eyes. If you bite down and feel where jaw comes together near ear, it is incredibly sore. And one last thing, it feels like my top vertabre in my neck is really out.
Avatar m tn I have had a sore throat for almost 14 days now, accompanied by infrequent stabbing pain in my jaw. I know that it's not normal to have a sore throat for this long (it's on my right side, same side as jaw pain) and I'm starting to become concerned. I saw a dentist, thinkin that it was tooth related, but the dentist said he could not attribute it to any tooth problems. He took my temp, felt glands, applied pressure to gums. Nothing, but the pain still persists. What could it be ?
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 m tn Left neck/jaw lymph node swollen very large (painful), sore throat, kinda a very very mild sharp pain in right side of abdomen (hardly noticeable) and fatigue. I read a lot about fevers for weeks and being very tired to where you cant hardly move. I was only like that the first few days, but it subsided. I only have the sore throat, abdomen pain, and large left side lymph node swelling. Is this the calm before the storm or possibly worse is over? My temp has averaged 98.2 since 3/10.
5887486 tn?1376104591 Hi, just last night, I was laying in bed, and rolled to my right side, and as I turned my head over on my pillow, I noticed it was painful. Today. I've noticed it all day, there is a slight lump on the right side under my jaw. It is moveable, and isn't excruciating just yet. When I apply pressure, or face my head downwards, it gets very sore. I am very curious to know if this is heard of commonly or not, and if it is a serious problem. Thank you!
Avatar f tn For the past week I have had a very bad headache on my right side. On a daily basis I get pulsing and sharp pain. The top of my head on my right side is really, really sensitive to the touch and it goes all the way down to my face. Around my cheek bone and jaw area. I'm not sure what this is but any help I can get would really be appreciated. Thank you in advance for taking time to respond to my question.
13831784 tn?1431660603 I have a white sore in my mouth. Way in the back on the area where the top of my jaw intersects with the bottom of my jaw on the left side. I have had it for literally at least 3 months and it will not heal. It hurts so bad. The sore itself hurts, but it is making my whole jaw ache. Also my left ear is swollen at the opening. It is almost swelled shut. I am not sure if they are related. I do not have insurance so that is why I have not seen a physician. I do not even have a regular doctor.
561470 tn?1253168113 About a week and half ago, I got up twice during the night that I know of and when I woke up next morning, we were sitting at the breakfast bar and I was complaining about sore teeth, aching right ear and a sore jaw on the right side when my partner noticed that I had a huge bruising and a lump and a very swollen jaw. I have no idea what I done to cause this.
Avatar m tn s the first time I have had an ulcer on the inside of my mouth and have noticed on the same side my jaw under it is sore too touch. Could they be related? Someone I work said possibly and I did a quick google search though I didn't click the links.
Avatar n tn Sometimes it is so bad that it is difficult to eat. When I grab the left side of my jaw and slide it right, the right side/TMJ hurts in the same way as it does when i bite down. Pushing the jaw the other way produces no pain. I am concerned because I also have a funny "feeling" in my right ear that has accompanied this jaw pain. My ear canal feels "cool" and like there is liquid or wax in it, but when I put my finger in it, there is nothing.
1916426 tn?1322408083 I woke the other morning to notice my mouth was really sore, it felt as though my gums on the right side had a lump on the inner side and my jaw and mouth hurt when I move it too much eg, eating, drinking I can not open my mouth wide without pain in my jaw and mouth area this is only on the right side. I also have a sore throat now. I also noticed today that my tonsils are swelling and I have a lot of mucus and my gums seem white.

Avatar n tn It always starts with a horrible headache then it goes to numbness in my cheek and jaw and ear. The other day I had a new symptom that was a sore throat pain in underneath of jaw and behind my ear. Anyway, someone told me the headache was a side effect of gabbapentin but the headache has always been present even before I started medication. The headache is constant and unrelenting. I have had MRI and cat scan and they were normal. Dr thinks my TN came from mastoiditis that I had.
Avatar f tn So recently for the past few months I have been getting terrible headaches on my right side affecting my eye as well, lasting a few days then going away for awhile. I've also had a constant pain in my jaw. It hurts a lot and increases when I eat. It also hurts behind my ear on the right side as well.
Avatar n tn The next day my gum started to swell where the shot was given. The swelling has went down but now there is a sore there and the left side of my cheek and jaw hurt. I've never experienced this before. What could this be?
