Maybe it is!: But without knowing your age or being able to see you, it is impossible to tell. The best advice anyone can give you is to call a local dentist for an appointment to determine the cause of your discomfort and what can be done to treat the problem.

Can't help you: You will have to be physically examined to diagnose the cause of your pain and to arrive at the appropriate treatment plan. Please see an Oral Surgeon immediately.
