I'm past due to have my teeth cleaned so I'm not sure if it is throbbing & aching because of that or maybe I have a cracked tooth. Feels like the pain is along my jaw line to my ear. I've been trying not to eat on that side, keeping it clean and have been rinsing it several times a day with salt water and listerine. Also took a low dose of vicodin. Going to lay down for awhile on the heating pad.
