Upper jaw pain sinus infection

Common Questions and Answers about Upper jaw pain sinus infection


Avatar n tn But now I have another very severe pain flare up in the sinus, jaw, neck witih swollen lymph nodes again. And this time, the Amoxil is only working 60% on my symptoms and I've been taking it 7 days now. Now I will be finding a new dentist, probably at the University dental school in my city. But really the question comes, since those Xrays showed nothing before, what can this really be?
Avatar f tn I'd say because of the tooth pain too it's a sinus infection. You could try saline to help rinse out your nasal passages or go to your doctor. They might give you a Z-pack or some other antibiotic if they suspect bacterial infection.
Avatar n tn I have a similar problem which is caused by a sinus infection in my maxillary sinus -- It is caused by an infection from a root canal -- it caused a communication from my mouth into my sinuses -- causing the infection. You need to take care of the tooth (filling/extraction/root canal) & then treat the sinus infection (anti-biotics) -- You should see a dentist about the tooth with the deep cavity to make sure you do not have an abcess.
587537 tn?1220108492 thats when the extreem pain started and swelling of both upper and lower gums. I do clinch my teeth, jaw pops/cracks more as I get older. So I was sent to a oral surgen to get the moler pulled, took exrays and he said No way; your sinus are swelling. Went to medical Dr. got that 5 day medican, a week later took extrays again and still tells me sinus infection. My nose fells clear, my ears do hurt and my jaw aches, along with swollen gums, only on right side.
Avatar m tn Intense burning immediately began rolling back towards where my jaw bone connected to my skull. I freaked out, the pain was as if burning lava was through my cheek, or powerful acid was burning a hole into my head. The nurse was trying to wash and suck the area I indicated as it moved farther back, pulled by gravity because I was lying back in the dentist chair. After about 5 minutes of burning near the back of my upper jaw, they finished filling my tooth.
Avatar f tn For about a month now I have been having chronic neck pain and extreme upper jaw pain. The pain is also in my nose. It feels like pressure like when you have a sinus infection. I wake up in the morning with drainage in my throat then it goes away as the day proceeds. I have been to the doctor too many times. They did a mri on my head and everything was normal they also did a CT scan on my face and that was also normal.
Avatar f tn I can feel the throbbing sensation localized on my upper back molar, but the pain still radiates along my upper and lower jawline. The pain subsides for awhile, then returns. However, the intensity is nothing compared to what I experienced a few days ago. That was almost unbearable at times. If it is a toothache, could it get better on it's on, without any intervention?
Avatar n tn They said it could be a sinus infection. I can believe the pain can possibly be that bad. It left. Now I have exactly the same thing on the other side of my mouth. It is in the lower jaw/ bone/tooth. They said it normally is in the upper teeth. Has anyone got any answers? I am 200 mile from a Dr This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/421800'>extreme tooth/jaw pain</a>.
Avatar n tn I am having terrible pain & pressure along my top right upper jaw, carrying along up the side of the nose and under the eye. It also continues over to the right ear. As I have been sick & run down for roughly 2 months, I just finished a 6 day stint of Erithromyocin (I'm 22 weeks pregnant, and allergic to penicillins) and now 2 days later the pain has started.
Avatar n tn I'm at a loss & need some guidance.I've had recurring sinus infections off over the past year & have been treated w/antibiotics regularly (most recently was a month ago or less). Also have quite a few cavities. Recently I experienced some pain in my upper jaw/face/ear & head & couldn't tell if it was tooth related as it was also in a sinus region (near left side of nose)& my nasal/ear passages have been swollen lately as well.
Avatar n tn the bridge of my nose, inbetween my eyebrows, my upper two front teeth. My family doctor assumed it was a sinus infection even though I could breathe clearly and had no discharge. Three rounds of antibiotics later, the pain was still there and I decided to try saline lavage and steam treatments myself. After months of that I went to see an ENT who took an x-ray and MRI. He said I have nothing wrong with my sinuses.
Avatar m tn I am 35 years old, and had my wisdom teeth removed when I was 24. But that's not why I'm posting. My current problem started roughly 3 or 4 years ago. My upper right 1st molar had a filling in it...the filling broke, and the dentist I used to have drilled it out and put a very large filling in. Even since that fateful day, I've had problems on and off. For the first 6 months or so, the tooth was tender and my maxillary sinus would hurt.
Avatar f tn Have the Sam e thing.Got a sinus infection that infected my eye and caused upper jaw pain. And some in my ear.
Avatar m tn I then went to see my primary care Dr. who examined upper respiratory system. He seems to think I have a sinus infection but said it could also be start of shingles. He converted my dentist's perscriptions to vicodin, azithromycin, & MucinexD. Still much pain 12 hrs. later. Hope this stuff works. Your comments?
Avatar m tn The implant itself was awful - he couldn't get me completely numb, I was crying by the end because it hurt so bad but he didn't want to stop at that point. Within two days I was in excruciating pain, starting in my jaw and radiating back to my ear, temple and back of my head. My ear felt like it had an ice pick stuck in it. He prescribed an anbitiotic which I managed to take for 3 days before having a problem with it (my stomach felt like it was being burnt).
Avatar n tn I was having head aches, neck/head aches, jaw pain, ear pain, and stabbing pains behind the eyes. Been on antibiotic, seemed to help alot, my eyes seemend like they were hazy even. Going to ENT doctor in early June. Oh by the way, I also had facial tingling for 6 years, this is why I had MRI done, everything was normal except for sinuses. Hope this helps. Take care.
Avatar n tn I have have a bad sinus infection for weeks and now I have yellow stuff drianing out of my ears. I got tiered of the infections. So went to an old rementy giger honey tea with a 1/2 of a cup of wisky added to the tea. with cooking one teaspoon of ginger in with the tea bags. Now after being on that for only two days so far the swolling of my sinuses has gone down so much that I can findly see my check bones. It is also drying out my sinuses.
Avatar f tn is it likely my occasional dizziness is related to a low grade sinus infection and occasional gum irritation
Avatar m tn ) Anyways, as the nights went on, I eventually started noticing some slight dizzyness/lightheadedness along with my sinuses killing me, so I naturally thought sinus infection. I only had a couple days left so I just took some Tylenol Cold and Sinus and sucked it up. I got back last thrusday and had made a doctors appt because of the sinus problems for last friday. When I got home last thrusday night my head felt like it was going to explode and I had a lot of lightheadedness.
Avatar n tn I had just switched allergy medications, from Nasonex to generic Flonase, right at the time my symptoms returned. Could allergies have led to a sinus infection? Can the sinus infection cause dizziness and fatigue? Due to the holiday weekend I haven't been able to call my doctor, but after 3 prior visits he's never suggested sinuses to be a cause.
Avatar n tn who said this was a sinus infection. I searched online and did not find anything suggesting a sinus infection can be caused by a tooth extraction. I read Sinus Infection on Mayo Clinic 's website and it describe more serious immune system problems can cause it , now i am really freaking out. It has been about 7 days now , anyone got any opinions or advise ? I never had this before and if anyone has any opinions , please help.
Avatar n tn In the last month or so i've had sinus pain that comes and goes (gets brought on my a cold or sometimes by crying) this pain is around my eyes, in my upper cheeks under my eyes and my forehead, as well as at the sides of my nose in between my eyes and my nose.
Avatar f tn You may possibly have a chronic sinus infection of the upper sinuses (frontal and sphenoid) which often do not respond to antibiotics because of low blood supply to the area, or it could be a stubborn virus that you got because of the unusually cool weather in Chicago this summer. You could also possibly have an opportunistic fungal or mold infection up there, along with the bacterial infection. Read about the cause of chronic here: http://www.medhelp.
Avatar f tn The Sphenoid sinuses are located in the body of the sphenoid bone. This is located just behind the eyes. The inflammation of this sinus often is felt as a nagging headache behind the eyes or on the side of the head. A sinus is an air pocket within a cavity of a bone and has a narrow opening for blood vessels. These vessels are very very small and blood must pass one cell at a time.
