Teeth grinding ear ache

Common Questions and Answers about Teeth grinding ear ache


215385 tn?1201806501 I have had complications with TMJ for many years with painful neuropathy on the right side of my head as a result of teeth grinding. Not only are you damaging your teeth but also damaging the nerves that run thru the area where your jaws connect. Once that nerve becomes damaged it can be quite painful. I don't know where you live but I know here in Texas you can go to any pharmacy and purchace a teeth guard, and they are very inexpensive, that you can wear during sleep.
Avatar f tn But I noticed over the past week I'm getting the ear pain again. It feels like a typical ear ache, inside the ear, you know? I was really tired last night so I went to bed early and woke up this morning feeling really headachey with a stiff neck and achey ears, mostly the right ear. I'm so fed up with this! I'm wondering if I should seek out an ENT or ask for an MRI of my neck and spine or something. I'm really struggling to get through days like this!
Avatar f tn I saw two dentist who took X-rays and explained it could be from grinding my teeth at night. They assured me that everything else looked fine. Since then, the pain has gotten worse and comes more often. I have been taking pain relievers everyday now, and sometimes more than once a day. The pain now also goes into my ear. After another visit to the dentist and another X-ray, I was given a night guard. I have been wearing it for almost a week, and see no changes.
Avatar f tn When speaking with my dentist yesterday she said to continue with Advil but to increase to every 4 hours for a week. She is wondering if I have started grinding my teeth or compressing my teeth in my sleep. Does this sound consitant with what I have described? Thanks for the help in advance!!
Avatar n tn I started having pain in my jaw area and just in front of my right ear (feel like ear ache) about 2 weeks ago. The pain does not seem to have any pattern. There has also pain tingling pain in my teeth on the right side. Sometimes it is the top teeth and sometimes the bottom. Now I am having problems with my throat also. I feel like someone is holding tight on the right side of my throat. I have no idea what it is. It does seem to help when I hold cold water on that side of my mouth.
Avatar f tn Do you grind or clench your teeth? That can make your teeth ache ALOT. Try to become aware if you do either. Night time clenching and grinding is especially difficult to become aware of unless someone can tell you if you do it. The last thing would be to get an appt with a neurologist and be tested for trigeminal neuralgia. Hope this helps and that you are painfree soon.
172826 tn?1423426556 it sounds possible you could be grinding your teeth. really you should see your dds. maybe your teeth just are stained since it has been a year since your last cleaning.
387767 tn?1345875627 Also, If your dentist mentions that you have some teeth-wear ( Attrition), then you are most likely grinding/clenching your teeth at night. Though I don't know what the reason could be for your throat closing up...
Avatar n tn This could be any number of things. It could be sinus related. If you've had a cold or flu of some sort sometime in the last 2-3 weeks before this began bothering you then it is possible the infection got into the sinuses of your head which would explain the pain.
Avatar n tn I,m having trouble with my nose its real dry and feels like maybe sores inside, what will help me with this, also I dont know if its a sx but my right ear hurts not like an ear ache but pain right where your jaw meets your ear.I would appreciate any help with this.
Avatar n tn I wear a top mouth brace for my teeth grinding. I have a dull ache in that tooth to heat and cold sometimes, but the real trouble is in my jaw when i wake up it as gradually got worse over the months from a loud clicking and almost making it hard to eat. I went to an endo dentist who said root canal then to a physio she seem to think with the TMJ i should wait for it to settle. It is confussing to know who to go to...
Avatar n tn constant ear popping, left eye area and cheek hurts along with my upper teeth, and my left nostril is numb. I have lost my appitite and have gas that taste like my stomach gases. What is it? I have tried cold medicine, decongestant, and ibporphen for my headache or to try to relieve some pressure surrounding my nose and eye. I have run out of options.
Avatar f tn Well when i was little my parents used to drink and fight just anout everynight, and i rember when they would i would find a hiding spot an clentch my teeth really hard untill it stoped (hours and hours) My dad would work might shifts and many nights I would fall asleep on the couch. My dad would say here could hear my teeth grinding from the other side of the house. Its weird because when he told me i didnt even know how to grind my teeth, and still dont to this day. I never had any problems.
Avatar m tn •Various types of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis •Jaw injury •Long-term (chronic) grinding or clenching of teeth •Certain connective tissue diseases that cause problems which may affect the temporomandibular joint
Avatar f tn Not sure exactly what started this whole thing off, but last July (2012) I had an intense sore throat left side only with a minor ear ache. Enough that it had me worried about the "C". Went to prompt care a few days later to be told I probably had a virus and they could see nothing in my ear or throat. They did a strep test - negative. Suggested I might try OTC allergy or even acid reflux meds. Imagine my relief. Well, I got no relief. I scheduled an appt for a physical.
Avatar n tn also i get frequent hedaches, which causes my neck muscles to ache and also the area around my right jaw and below the ears, temples of my head, n also ear pain, but its not like inner ear ache,its a different kind of pain. i did go back to the doctor to check if heamangeoma was back, but after the xrays and doppler test(like ultrasound test), but the everything showed that i am normal. i started these problems as i joined work, and goin through alot of stress.
Avatar n tn The pain was so sharp, it felt like someone stabbed me in the top of my head with some sharp thin tool and the pain went straight down the top of my head thru my ear and into my teeth. I was on the floor holding my head for my deal life. After the pain left, 2 minutes later, the pain in my head isnt so bad but it scared me. Anyone have any information on what this could be? Please let me know!
748543 tn?1463449675 Dental Occlusion must be synchronized with healthy Mandibular Function as it relates to a healthy head position and by extension a healthy posture. So why are teeth/occlusion so important for posture? In simple terms incorrect posture is due to a twisted spine, which barring accidents or skeletal abnormalities- like a short leg, is due to an incorrect position of the skull.
Avatar n tn Right ear pain Right ear fullness/ringing Pain behind right eye spot headaches on right side grinding teeth at night stiff neck - going into my shoulders I had an MRI/MRA back in Oct and all it showed was chronic sinusitis which I am being treated for by my ENT however he knows the pain is not coming from my ear. I am worried. Could this be an aneursym? I know a tumor or something like that would have showed on MRI. I've heard horror stories about aneurysms in carotid arteries and next to ear.
Avatar f tn I now am loosing my hearing in my right ear. It's an awful muffled sound-and constant ache. Trying to find anything on the internet, and having no luck. Any info would be so helpful.
Avatar f tn Also the crack was caused by misaligned teeth. it seems the underlying ache was still there but has erupted again, my jaw, in front of my right ear (or is it earache) and can you believe the teeth that have no nerves in them from the root canal. And it seems the all my teeth feel so sensitive. I have never really suffered with tooth ache of any kind and also they are puzzled because they say I have quite good teeth according to xrays....what could this be? Feel so grim just want a solution.
Avatar f tn The neck muscles coming down from my ear are very hard and I have intense pain just below my jear/jaw. Often ear ache accompanies and in last 6 mos, severe tooth ache (top and bottom) and cheek pain. It lasts for 3-6 wks. Usually on right side but sometimes on left. It is one side or other, not both. I have been to 6 doctors-3 said there's nothing wrong, 2 said sinus infection and gave me antibiotics and the third said musculo-skeletal injury. The antibiotics helped a little, maybe 50%.
Avatar n tn Tooth pain (even my front teeth ache right now) 3. Ear stuffiness/ringing I had a cleaning/Xrays in April and they said everything looked okay. This just seems to flare every now and then. What treatment options exist for TMJ? Thank you.
Avatar n tn Hi, My problem started last Tuesday (Today is Friday) with the most horrendous toothache I’ve ever suffered. This ache was in all the teeth on the right side top and bottom. I saw my dentist who said he could see no sign of infection but put me on penicillin. I explained that my lower jaw was also really sore. Over night however, I was extremely sick and on Wednesday the dentist changed my meds. On Thursday my face near my jaw really swelled but my teeth no longer hurt like they did.
Avatar f tn Since then it seems like i have been grinding my teeth at night when i am sleeping, but im not sure. I am feeling extreme discomfort and pain on the side of the crown, symptoms are extreme headaches, ache around my jaw, right eye twitching ( side of the crown) tightness around tooth #4 ( even though i was told it would be temporary) , ear ache ( right side). my bite doesnt feel the same. Are these normal symptoms and do they eventually go away?
1867019 tn?1353471140 You are probably not only clenching your jaw, but grinding your teeth at night as well. All that is making your Temporal Mandibular Joint very sore. Your jaw hurts where it connects to your ear, right? You can try an OTC night guard, but it would be best to have your dentist make one if you can afford that. I'll leave you the link to the TMJ forum... http://www.medhelp.
Avatar f tn I went to my allergist in January when I was very tired and had an ear ache and he prescribed a z-pack. At the time I had constant fluid in my throat - In retrospect it would seem that it was post nasal drip when I drank and gastric fluids when I ate. The ear was still bothering me with a marked hearing loss in April and he prescribed 5 days prednisone and told me to use my Rhinochort.
Avatar n tn Have you got an MRI?
Avatar f tn Not sure if I grind my teeth, but it's a possibility, I've heard from someone in the past that they saw me grinding. I'm going to see a dentist tomorrow, but I would like to hear your opinions...
Avatar n tn They will check muscles in the area of the TMJ, look for asymmetry or inflammation in your face, listen for joint clicking or scraping sounds, test the range of motion in your jaw, and examine your teeth for evidence of jaw clenching or teeth grinding. With the diagnosis they will determining which treatment or combination of therapies will work best for you. Take care and keep us posted.
