    Most probably a TMJ (Temperal-Mandibular-Joint)issue.

    It may come from an unbalanced bite, which might be able to be fixed by your dentist by just a little grinding down of the surface of the teeth that are hitting (the opposing teeth) first, i.e. before they hit on the other side of your mouth (making both sides occlude at the same time).

    Or…

    You may be grinding/clenching your teeth and need to wear a nightguard when you sleep.

    Possible TMJ–see a dentist if pain persists (especially when chewing).

    #753417

    tmj quite unlikely

    tmj typically causes ear pain, tooth pain, headaches.

    not jaw pain

    why would stress make a diff?

    Are you able to move your jaw, or are you just in pain? Did you cut/puncture yourself recently? And if so, are you up to date on your tetanus shots? Google tetanus/lockjaw and see if the symptoms match your own, and if so, SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION NOW.

    #753421

    let me clarify my previous post

    by jaw pain i assumed for some reason you meant the lower jaw, the chin and behind

    if you meant the upper jaw, near the ear and below, then yes tmj is a likely cause

    You say you don’t grind your teeth but you may clench or grind your teeth while you are sleeping and not be aware of it.

    This would stress the jaw muscles and could be the cause of your problem.

    I would guess you may need a nightguard.

    Because he’s angry. Is this a trick question?

    why would teeth that are all filled already and no cavities hurt? That is a better question!

    It’s only from stress and can be controlled with the mind. Read Dr. Sarno’s books. It got me rid of my SEVERE TMJ for $0.

    #753429

    For me that would be a sinus issue. Do you have a cold/congestion?

    Could be cardiac related… watch for any other signs and symptoms remembering that not everyone presents typically.

    I have the same problem lately. I can’t open my mouth wide at all (actually quite small) and it hurts to chew on things weather hard or soft. Also, sometimes my ears hurt and the upper part of my jaw always hurts. At night, when laying down and putting pressure on the jaws it hurts too. What should I do? (Someone told me that going to a dentist won’t help, since he’s not a TMJ doctor)

    That’s exactly it. Your mind can’t or won’t deal with your stress, so it’s fardreying you a kop with your TMJ. Read it, it’s worthwhile, for any chronic pain, even CFS.

    Do you chew gum a lot? That’s could also cause TMJ.

    #753436

    um there is a profession called “doctor” it’s actually been around for a long time. It’s true it is not always a full proof method, but seeking a doctor’s advice might be good in this case. I know it’s a crazy idea and asking about a hundred people whom you don’t know is of course the wiser thing to do ( i do it myself sometimes because I am afraid of doctors)… but still maybe consider it.:)

    On a lighter note (or rather a deeper note), Tehilim also works. Ask Hashem to take it away from you, do teshuva for whatever you think that you do is causing this (it is min Hashamaim after all…) the pain should be a kapparah for everything that you ever did, or your family ever did, and the pain should go away immediately and you should live to a 120 in perfect health! (don’t forget to say Amen)

    p.s. i couldn’t resist on commenting on your post because it reminded me of myself (though I have never actually gone to extreme to post it in CR…I might have if I had thought of it) anything to avoid visiting a doctor.:) they do actually learn something in their years of medical school and residency, etc. (I hope)

    not telling, it was the same by me. I got rid of it in 2 DAYS just by thinking the right thoughts (“Mind, get off my TMJ”) and IGNORING it (opening my mouth, chewing, talking as much as I wanted). PLEASE give it a try. I hate to see people suffer when they could be helped so easily for FREE.

    #753439

    could be from a sinus infection too. If it is from TMJ, stop chewing gum.

    You can. My advice -go to a dentist. These type of pains are usually tooth related, eg. cavity. It could also be TMJ problems. Your dentist can detect this also. If you wait too long -a cavity can turn into a major problem and you could end up losing the tooth or having a root canal. Get an appt. ASAP!

    s2021-professional boxing has been known to cause jaw pain. You may want to ease off a bit until the symptoms subside.
