If the pain is...: ...Similar to pains you have had before, it is unlikely to be related to a heart attack. Radiated pain feels different from directly experienced pain.

Tmj: Your age and negative cardiac testing point to a non-cardiac cause of jaw pain. Dental evaluation and possible dental device may be useful.

TMJ: Your age and negative cardiac w/u rule out cardiac cause. Probable TMj. See TMJ expert for advice. Any dentist can be a TMJ expert with the proper training and experience. Most commonly, oral surgeons, prosthodontists, and orofacial pain specialists. Ask your MD, your dentist and your dental society for referrals.
