I was eating something crunchy when I suddenly got jaw pain on the left side near my ear whenever I clench my teeth. Is this something I can wait out?

I was eating something crunchy when I suddenly got jaw pain on the left side near my ear whenever I clench my teeth. Is this something I can wait out?

Just eat a softer diet, try taking an NSAID like advil (ibuprofen) and alternate between hot/cold compress on the joint. ...Read more
