Is it normal to have a facial jaw pain when sneeze, i had two this morning. I think I have been having some allergy.

Eat softer foods next few days and take advil (ibuprofen) if needed. Moist heat can sometimes help as well. If pain continues past a few days or reoccurs regularly then see your dentist for evaluation. ...Read more
