Left: Most cardiac related jaw pain is in the lower jaw on the left side. It's also more common in women than men. If you have any other symptoms of a heart attack, seek immediate medical attention. If its just jaw and ear pain, see your dentist. Could be an ear infection, accessed tooth, or TMJ problem.

Get checked out!: Jaw pain - upper or lower - can be related to heart disease. Other causes include sinus or ear infections. At your age, it would be unusual to have a heart attack, but it's possible - especially if you have risk factors such as smoking, high cholesterol, diabetes, kidney failure. I think it would be reasonable to be seen and evaluated. Good luck. Lgromkomd.

Lower: Even though is more in the lower some patient have different symptoms that are not that "classic". If you have cardio problems visit your doctor asap. If everything is ok then visit your dentist.
