Can jaw pain be associated with sinus and thyroid problems?

Yes, and more.

Thyroid
A proper diagnosis of jaw pain depends on a good history about it: where, how long, when in the day, what brings it on, etc. Diagnosis can also can depend to age, like in pain from the heart. Pain can be related to a number of other parts of the head or neck. The answer may be quick and easy or may be more difficult. Definitely, one needs to have it evaluated by a physician or dentist. Or both.

I have lower right jaw pain & headache. Could this be a sinus problem?

Unlikely

It's more likely a tooth problem and an unrelated headache. You can have more than one problem at the same time. Take some OTC pain medication and see your dentist first.

Dr. John C. Comisi answered:

Can sinus pressure cause lower tooth and jaw pain?

Possible

Open-uri20121227-17494-rpyvgk
The complexity of the head and neck area never ceases to amaze me. The intimacy of the vessels, nerves and sinus and lymph chain of this area hold many surprises. Usually upper teeth are involved but It is possible, and it would be wise to have this type of symptom evaluated by your dentist to determine if it is dentally related. If it is not, then the next stop is your physician.

Dr. Fay Gyapong answered:

I have a sinus infection (viral, I think) and I am on antibotics. I have shooting teeth and jaw pain at random times. What can I do to relieve this pain?

Viral infection

Sinus
You say you have a viral infection. If this is a definite diagnosis, antibiotics will not help cure the infection. Visit your primary care physician or an ENT doctor for the sinus problem and visit your dentist to evaluate your intermittent teeth pain.

Headache, ear, jaw pain. Feel tired and have a foggy feeling. I think it's my sinus but not sure.

Head/jaw/ear pain

Head-ear
The symptoms you are describing can be attributed to the flu, sinus infection, TMJ/TMD disorder (usually the result of bruxism, which is chronic teeth grinding and/or clenching), sleep apnea/sleep disorders. See your dentist for an examination and evaluation of TMD. See your medical doctor or an ENT specialist to check for sinus and/ or ear infections.

I always have plugged ears and sinus pressure/jaw pain. Could it be allergies? Possible TMJ for jaw pain?

Several possibilitie

Allergist
Cause is usually congestion (swelling) in the nose, sinuses & eustacian tubes. The eustacian tubes connect the throat to the middle ear, allowing for air pressure to be equalized. When swollen, the air cannot pass through and ear pressure results. Caused by allergies, colds, acute or chronic sinus infections. Jaw pain can come from ears and vice versa. Doctors exam and tests should find cause

Dr. Jeffrey Jarvis answered:

I have pain on the outside ear. Sometimes pain runs from there to the jaw when I open the jaw pain will be felt. is it sinus pain?

TMJ?

Head-jaw
It is possible that you might have a problem with your ear, but you might also have a problem with the muscles or the joint of your jaw. Start by seeing your dentist who can examine your bite and the health of your jaw joints (TMJ). See your physician too, to make sure you don't have an ear infection. Good luck!
