I Had Oral Sex Yesterday And Woke Up This Am With Jaw Pain Could This Be My Tmj
Yes!: Interesting story and situation. If you strained your jaw wide open, you could have sprained your jaw joint, or tmj. Under these circumstances, it probably won't' last long. You should try a soft diet and "baby" your jaw for a few days and see if it doesn't go away.
