Throat infection jaw pain

Common Questions and Answers about Throat infection jaw pain


Avatar f tn My left ear no longer pops, but my right ear did. Then I started getting sharp jaw pain. I also developed a sore throat (no cough, fever, or pleghm). My right ear got infected again (very sharp ear pain) but I decided to wait a few days before going to the doctor. Overnight, the ear infection cleared up, but the lymph nodes under my jaw are swollen and painful. The skin above them is a soft pink. I still have the sore throat.
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 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 n tn For the past few years i have had reoccuring infections of my throat and have had strep throat at least 2 to 3 times each year. It has made me have this greenish brown mucous every day come from my throat and I also get excessive boogers in my nose that bleed sometimes. Recently i have had a fowl smell come from the left side of my jaw.
Avatar f tn Hi there, thanks in advance for your help. I went to my GP 4 days ago with a sore throat on the right side, with which i had difficulty opening my mouth without pain and it hurt to eat and swallow. She told me it was an infection and gave me erythromycin. However, my glands don't feel swollen but the inside of my right cheek at the back (where the joint of my jaw is) feels like there is a lumpy patch and the side of my face feels numb.
Avatar m tn For almost 4 months now, I have been experiencing some symptoms including globus sensation (feeling of something stuck in my throat), bad tasted in mouth, sore throat, raspy voice, pain in the right side jaw from behind the ear and following the jawline toward the chin, a lump in the soft tissue between my jaw bone and my chin (doctor thought it might be a lymph node, but I am not so sure now), and tooth sensitivity to hot, cold, and pressure.
Avatar f tn I'm in my 37th week of pregnancy and I think I have a sinus infection. Really congested, extreme migraine and jaw pain, throat hurts. I've had symptoms for about 10 days now and not getting any better. What I should do to get better asap. I'm having my baby in 12 days and I want to be healthy.
Avatar m tn I am a 21 year old non smoker, currently suffering a few days of neck pain, with occasional pain swallowing, sometimes minor ear ache (only on left side). I once had an inflamed lyph node (some months ago) but then nothing unil now. I have a history of hypochondria, and identifying pains with no cause, and was begining to worry about having pancreatic cancer or some bowl problems before, but this certainly seems real. Pain comes and goes.
Avatar n tn Hi, I am having what looks like a slightly larger appearance of a "heart-like strip" below my adam's apple. I can feel a mile (nearly non-existent) ache always from that area. My doctor tells me it is my thyroid. It looks like it is mildly swelled up, and has been there for 4-5 days. A few weeks ago, I had a wisdom tooth extracted, and had swelling and slight pain in the surgical site areas.
Avatar f tn I have been getting jaw pain over a few months, twice when I've felt a massive "click" and it hurt, and this morning it felt locked and has been sore since. My ears have also felt blocked. Anyone have any ideas? Don't really want to go to drs if I don't have to.
Avatar m tn s a very good idea to seek therapy ~ it can make a world of difference in your life! Regarding the jaw pain; clenching jaw muscles can affect your neck and jaw, it is actually a common symptom for many people who suffer from anxiety. If it is extreme, you can ask your dentist for a mouth guard, which can help reduce the pain and also save your teeth from any future damage ( use it at night while you sleep, or if you nap anytime)...
14726666 tn?1448779692 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. My dentist did a cat scan and said that I have an extra tooth under the gum on my lower left side. He has recommended me to an oral surgeon to have the extra tooth cut out. First how do they know that the dark spot is an extra tooth under the gum and not something in my bone?
Avatar f tn I say that because i have had a few dental issues such as wisdom teeth coming through, dead tooth and even TMG where my jaw aches and causes pain side of the head, neck and throat.
Avatar m tn I've been having facial pain and pressure for the last couple weeks that is sometimes mainly in my jaw joints (particularly the left side) but at other times mainly along my cheek bones (on both sides, not just the left). I'll wake up one day and have my jaw joint hurting (especially when I open my mouth) and not much pain in my cheeks, and then the next day I won't have much pain in my jaw joint but a lot of pain in my cheeks.
Avatar n tn I went for my routine cleaning at the dentist two days ago and expected a little soreness of my jaw and back gums around my wisdom teeth. However, the pain in my jaw is still present, and so bad that i can barely open my mouth halfway to eat, and when I swallow it feels like I have strep throat. The dentist did a lot of evaluating of my jaw bone during the appointment since i have minor TMJ disorder, but my TMJ disorder does not cause pain like I am experiencing now.
Avatar n tn The infection levels are up but do not know from where the infection is coming from. Started with jaw and neck pain that move to the left arm then down to the hips and is now in hips and both shoulders and the right shoulder is severe now. Has been sick for seven weeks now. Started with strep throat and sinuitis, then the jaw pain and stiff neck which moved into shoulders. Test for lupus is negative, and negative for Fibromyalgia also. Any ideas would be welcomed.
Avatar f tn A couple days ago I started having throat/neck pain. Its lower on my neck/throat. It doesn't feel like a sore throat or a pulled muscle. When I touch the area it hurts more. Also, It hurts more when I swallow, yawn or cry. I think it is where my lymph node is located. It's only on the left side. A few hours ago I started having severe, constant pain in my jaw/teeth. Also, on the left side. I don't know if it is related. Any ideas on what's going on? Should I see a doctor?
Avatar f tn Neck lymph nodes can be the result of tonsillitis, pharyngitis (infection of upper throat), infection in mouth, caries in tooth, internal ear infection, outer ear infection, eczema, dermatitis, dandruff, breast cancer, fungal infection, other cancers like lymphoma etc. If you had flu like symptoms initially then it could be due to infectious mononucleosis too.
Avatar n tn i just started getting a needle sharp pain in my neck below my ear extending to the jaw area when i swallow, what could cause this?
Avatar n tn You know I may also be TMJ, that's what I have,the worst case. I get pain in my jaw, headaches, sometimes throat pain, and ear pain, and back pain, you'll know if you have it by pressure on your side jaw(both sides) Just my oppinion.
Avatar m tn I'm a 24 year old male. For about the last year ive had a bit of a mystery going on with my throat, i started to notice my lymph nodes acting up, i could feel them, also my uvula was poking my tongue..VERY annoying and something ive dealt with on and off for a year, i had blood tests done, cultures ultra sounds of the nodes, nothing irregular found. Its been going on for so long its affecting my quality of life...
Avatar n tn You may have an infection. The infection could also be in your jaw and not the tooth. I have one in my jaw right now it's terribly painful and I was gievn a combination of 2 different antibiotics to treat it. If you need a root canal they will go through the crowns I had it done yesterday. The x-rays don't tell them if there is infection they go on symptoms and other diagnostic tests tapping the tooth, ice, and a few others.
Avatar m tn When the numbness wore off, I experienced jaw/throat pain in the back of my mouth on the right side with the pain centered below my ear. The pain is tolerable but is is difficult to swallow and chew. Now on Friday, the pain continues and it has remained the same since the first day. Since I am not experiencing tooth pain, should I call the dentist and schedule an appointment?
Avatar n tn 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. That pain is now bearable. Today I saw my doctor who also could see no obvious signs of infection even though my ear and throat now hurt.
Avatar n tn About five days ago, I began experiencing some pain in the back of my jaw. I immediately assumed it was my wisdom teeth (three of them are through the gum, one is not). The pain moved from my teeth to the side of my face, the base of my tongue, and down my throat. I started taking over-the-counter pain reliever and using numbing gel, and this helps, but the pain persisted.
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 m tn symptoms eased a little, but my throat remained as sore - so much so that it prevented me from sleeping because of the pain, even with pain-killers. We had some spare amoxicillin in the house, so I began taking it. It was very effective, and by the time I had finished the course my throat felt normal again and I had no symptoms of illness. Within about 5 days, however, the sore throat returned with a vengeance, and the next day I experienced severe ear pain, jaw ache and tooth ache.
Avatar m tn I have had a severe infection in my upper right jaw, for the last 15 years. It is so bad now, that even when it doesn't flare up, my throat still swells up. 2 days ago, it flared, and I am having severe pain not only in my jaw, but in my throat and's bleeding very heavily, and there's not much I can do for the pain, especially in my chest.....I have been diagnosed with emphysima, and I'm concerned with lung infections.
Avatar f tn Hello and hope you are doing well. The ear pain could be due to the throat infection. There are tubes called 'Eustachian tubes' which connect the middle ear to the throat, this balances the air pressure in the ears. This tube can get blocked due to infections of the throat, which can give lead to a feeling of fullness in the ears. This can also result in infection of the ears.
