Common Questions and Answers about Throat pain under jaw


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 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 had a sore throat and sharp pain in my throat for over a month now. this morning i woke up and glands under my neck were huge and very painfull. both sides were enlarged and if u press on them it makes my jaw hurt. do u know what this is?
Avatar m tn For about a month now I have had jaw pain under the mandible. Lymph nodes are not swollen and the pain comes and goes. Driving me crazy. Starting to think salivary gland is blocked as my.mouth is a bit dry.
Avatar n tn I have severe throat pain on left side mainly underneath jaw and at bottom of throat. Seems to be set off by acidic foods, or swallowing bulky rough items. I have never had a sore throat like this before -- I have no other symptoms no cold, no runny nose, no cough etc. It has not gotten any better after a kind of 2 day onset 6 days ago. Yawning really hurts severely.
Avatar m tn Just to add that it's common to have a throat discomfort accompany jaw pain. When I had angina attacks, the lower jaw felt really stiff like it was difficult to move and all along under the lower back teeth ached. This always followed throat discomfort. The only way I can describe the throat discomfort is to ask you to imagine eating a lot of very strong mint sweets. Eating a whole packet very fast and then drinking cold water.
Avatar m tn So I have a lump or inflammation of what I presume is a gland between my large neck muscle and under the back of my jaw line. Last week I was ok but developed a sore throat and headaches late last week and by the weekend I had a sore throat, vomited once and developed a sore neck and this lump all in the space of a day. I dunno what it is but if I turn my neck now it's not that painful but before it felt like I had strained a muscle in my neck and the lump itself is quite tender to touch.
Avatar n tn t really feel like a lump- but its just noticeably harder there when I press down. There is no pain at all, either. Although lately my throat has been feeling a little tighter than usual, and I lose my breath a lot quicker. I do feel as though my nose and throat have accumulated more mucus than usual, but I don't know if that's at all related.
Avatar f tn Pain below ear/in jaw began about 6 months ago. Tongue pain is recent, ear pain and sinus pain/congestion have increased from allergies but were present prior to allergen exposure. Lymph nodes in neck are perpetually swollen but worse in the last couple months (again, possibly allergies?). Other relevant/potentially relevant info: have reflux for which I am on Prilosec.
1415174 tn?1453243103 I have a painful swollen bump under my neck (under the jaw) for about 6 months which I thought was a swollen lymph node. The GP thought so too at first. Later he referred me to a ear nose and throat doctor to have them check for sure. The Ear , nose and throat doctor/surgeon thought it could be a clogged salivary glad so he asked for at CT scan to see. The CT scan was negative and he said it was a muscle knot. In my case since i have myofasical pain syndrome it fits.
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 n tn I have a swollen lymph node under my jaw on the right side. It is painful to touch on and around the lymph node. I went to the doctor. Doc said I'm fighting an infection but my nose throat and ears are clear from infection. Now, i also have a nearly unbearable pain under the right side of my tongue. When I eat it starts burning and is painful. It even burns when I rinse my mouth with water. The lymph node also starts throbbing and hurts.
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.
770108 tn?1235020229 Hello, I am a 42 year old female and about 2 weeks ago I noticed a tender spot under my lower jaw bone. It became increasingly tender and then I noticed a lump on the bone under the lower jaw and it is hurting more and more. It seems to be growing as well. Now when I look in the mirror it looks like that area is swollen but if you touch you can feel the hard lump on the jaw bone. It doesn't move around and it has become so painful it hurts if I yawn or clear my throat.
Avatar m tn So under my chin I have this tightness pain. It's like from my chin to throat i guess. I really think it kinda under the jaw or tongue area... Is this from stress and anxiety.
346570 tn?1267500027 Its kinda like having a sore throat but on the out side of my throat but still under my skin....does that make sense? Anyway has anyone else had this kinda of ache...what was it?? I don't feel bad otherwise although I had a cold a couple weeks ago and mono is going around. But I have no current symptoms right now other than maybe a runny nose.
Avatar n tn Most troubling now is the pain goes from under my ears (mostly right) in a stream-line to my jaw, under my jaw/tongue. Recently the back of my neck (not throat) has felt very feverish. My tongue is swollen a little to where it makes it hard to breathe at night. Some mucus/phlegm, but airway is very constricted now. Chewing food makes me gag because of constriction. The ENT doctor in our smaller town cannot see me for 10 days, but i'm wondering if this is bad enough to go to the ER.
Avatar f tn I was in the shower a minute ago, and when I pressed down on my throat, on the left side, right under my jaw it hurt. Do I have laryngitis or what? I'm a Taurus, so I'm prone to problems with my neck. But what is going on with me? Please help!

Avatar f tn Hi mila21, Oh boy, you're in that "fun" waiting stage between biopsy and results. It's like torture, isn't it? I hope you get good news next week. I can't imagine that a needle biopsy could cause a sore throat and earache, but I'm not a doctor. If it does have to do with the lump itself, maybe it's pressing on something that is causing the pain. You should call your doctor's office and talk to the nurse.
Avatar m tn Still some phlegm but I had pain on the left side of my throat. Doctor said my throat was red so he gave me some antibiotics (amoxocillin). Week 3: Still had phlegm in my throat but no fever, no pain, and no coughing. Week 4: Same symptoms. I went back to the doctor and he said as long as my phlegm is clear not to worry. Week 5: Went to another doctor for a second opinion. She said my throat is red and gave me some antibiotics called zithromax.
Avatar f tn Over the last few years on and off I have had pain under the right breast accompanied with trapped air, jaw pain and throat muscle pain. I have had all of the gall bladder tests and under care of a cardiologist. This seems to be strictly related to digestive issues. Until recently this only occurred 3-5 times a year. In the last two weeks it is almost constant with not so much pain on the right side. My gastroenterologist doesn't seem to have a diagnosis. Any ideas??? Thanks.
