Could a spider bite in the ear cause jaw pain similar to getting punched?

Could a spider bite in the ear cause jaw pain similar to getting punched?

Quite Possible: I have not come across this, but it is possible. A spider bite typically causes a localized inflammatory response. The tempromandibular joint of your jaw comes into close proximity to your ear and thus could feel like jaw pain. If you already clench/grind your teeth, that area is already irritated and thus the spider bite could have made this discomfort more noticeable.

Headache, upper full jaw pain, can only open mouth half way then get more pressure/pain in head. Seen dentist 3 weeks ago no issues. What is cause?

Internal derangement: Disc displacement without reduction. The disc remains trapped in front of the condyle resulting in limited range of motion. Muscles of mastication in co-contraction to protect tmj. Stress of the uncertainty. All this leads to tension type headache. Rec.: see an orofacial pain specialist for disk reduction and amelioration of the condition.

My daughter's skinpeeled from head to toe after what we think was a spider bite...what should we do?

? not a spider bite: After a strep or staph infection with strains that produce exfoliatin toxin (and related toxins) the skin commonly peels all over, not just in the area of infection. A bad spider bite could get infected or these infections can sometimes look like a "spider bite". It may be that is what is going on here.

Yes, It's Possible: Problems within the tm joint can cause a huge variety of symptoms, which differ from person to person. Ear and jaw pain are very common. Facial tingling and numbness are less common, but still possible. Unfortunately, there's really no proven way for you to take care of this problem yourself. You need to see a dentist who's experienced with TMJ problems. Get help before your symptoms worsen!

See a dermatologist: It is difficult to make a proper diagnosis since I am not there to see the condition. I recommend seeing a dermatologist so that they can make a proper diagnosis and give you something to get rid of the condition or relieve symptoms.

Been havin bilateral jaw pain in front and below ear area. Intensified when bgin eat food. Almost like feeling of eating somethn sour. Burning. Causes?

Jaw pain: It sounds like either TMJ or salivary gland infection, either the parotid on the cheek or the submandibular under the jawline. TMJ more likely to be bilateral, but parotitis can be bilateral too - like mumps for example. You need to diagnose the focal cause of pain in question before addressing how to relieve it.
