I don't know what's wrong with me? I've been getting on and off headaches every day several times a day. I've also been having jaw pain and toothaches often. The jaw pain is on both sides of my jaw. I've been feeling a strong pulse not only in my head bu

First, : First, you should go to health services and have them check your blood pressure since your pulses seem unusually strong to you. The other thing you should do is to make an appointment with your dentist. You may be grinding your teeth at night and experiencing temporo-mandibular joint dysfunction. The TMJ is the joint between the mandible (jawbone) and the temporal bone just in front of the ear. The pain would radiate from inflamed tmj's to the temples and the jaws. Your dentist may recommend a bite block to wear at night. You are smart to limit salt and to try to lose weight. Good luck to you. ...Read more

See dentist first: Suggest you see a dentist ASAP. At age 19, third molar eruption or impaction is always a possibility. You state that the state of your dentition is poor, perhaps, caries or gingival issues is the problem in addition. Last but not least, sinus issues can mimic upper tooth pain. If this is the issue, you will be referred to an ENT. Try the most basic first and see the dentist. ...Read more

I have a cold sore on both sides of my mouth and extreme jaw pain. Are the two related?

Perhaps but...: Cold sores are a general term and many individuals incorrectly use it to describe both canker sores\aphthous ulcers and herpetic sores. Both present differently and have different implications. Finally I would not associate those sores with "extreme" jaw pain. See a dentist for a differential diagnosis, a complete exam and evaluation and treatment as\if needed. ...Read more
