Can jaw pain be associated with sinus and thyroid problems?

Sinus: The maxillary sinus is located near your nose. If the pain is coming from there, then it might be a sinus infection. You could be coming down with a cold or have a bad tooth. A rotten tooth in the lower jaw can cause an infection that is draining into a space in the floor of the mouth. If you feel it is the latter, definitely go get checked! ...Read more

If it is not, then the next stop is your physician. ...Read more
