    BUMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  3. hi angelkisses.

    yes i also get the pain and swelling in the jaw and cheek muscles.i can actually see that my face is swelled,and my brother also comented on it.

    my dentist is currently concerned about my jaw pain,and the clicking.she very kindly said to me...ill see you for another check up in six months,instead of the usual one year,as she wants to see how things go.

    i have no dental decay,and im sure the swelling is related to the jaw problem.

    but i also get the swelling in my ears.the hole was closed up,as the swelling was that bad.i just take the occasional anti inflamatory pill if the pain gets too severe.

    my doctor had said that its possible that i have arthritis in the jaw,and so i should try and rest the jaw when i get the first niggle of severe pain.


    kind regards

    You might have a sinus infection, or arthritis. You could try putting a heating pad or hot cloths on your face and see if it feels better.

    Could you have a allergic reaction to something??? I would see the doctor if it does not go away very soon...

    I am very relieved to hear some one else has this happening too .. throat/jaw/ear/temple pain started last week .. specifically on the left side .. I have never had anything quite like it ..
    My family doctor is away on compassionate leave .. I hate trying to explain this to a substitute doctor .. I'm hoping it will go away soon.
    It helps to hear some one else has this odd thing too though .. thank you for posting about it !

    ...you say yours is on the left side---are you sure this isn't a migraine? I get migraines on the right side only; sometimes the actual headache isn't too bad, but the pain in my eye, ear, face and neck on that side is awful! My ear feels HOT, too. Migraine medicine takes this all away for me.

    Just wondering, because you mentioned one side only...and migraines can manifest themselves with pain other than just the head...

    Hope you and Angel both feel better!

    Hugs,
    Pam
