Referred pain: It was not specified where the injured side is but I hope you already contacted your doctor.

TMJ TMD: Temporo-mandibular disorder is the second most frequent cause of orofacial pain after dental pain. TMJ injury post trauma or in car accidents is a common cause of TMD. Proper diagnosis is the key for the successful treatment. See an orofacial pain practitioner for a consultation and management.
