    If there is no popping or grinding?

    I have this horrible, terrible pain, on my jaw, just under the ear....it doesn't hurt that bad to open or shut my mouth, more like a pressure feeling...but the pain is constant , feeling of ..how to I explain it?

    Like I just ate something very sour...at the back of the hinge joint there?

    I don't know how else to explain it? It's very sore to the touch, and I am not able to eat...it hurts so much.

    I've read up on TMJ....but I don't have the popping or grinding when I open my mouth.

    Any clues?

    At this point...I'm willing to do anything...I will go eat something sour right away....more like suck on something....chewing is out of the question.
    I know I've got to do something...till I can get to the doc!
    Thanks again!
