Ear ache sometimes in both ears, teeth sometimes hurt, very sharp jaw pain on right side of mouth mostly happens before bed, get it daily what is it?

Pain and dysfunction: If the tmj/tmd issues last for awhile, some symptoms can affect the ear (s) in many ways. You may develop ringing in the ears; earaches, popping-grating-clicking that is heard constantly in the ears; roaring muffled sounds; hearing loss; on and on. It is better to see an ENT first if you have ear symptoms to rule out it being the ears as the source of the problem. ...Read more

I got a cold 2weeks ago now my right side temple hurts along with occasional ear and jaw pain what is this?

One other thought: I fully agree with the excellent answer and advice given to you by dr. Pohlhaus. Please be aware that you could also have more than one problem at the same time. If it's been awhile since your last dental checkup, it might not be a bad idea to also see your dentist, even if the primary problem is of medical origin. Most md's are not that familiar with diagnosing TMJ issues. ...Read more

Please tell me if TMJ can cause right side facial numbness ear and jaw pain?

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! ...Read more

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?

Be careful: You could have strained your left TMJ when you were eating. If the range of motion of your jaw is not affected and you experience no pain/discomfort or popping/clicking in the joint when you open and close and if you don't notice a change in your bite then you can expect it to get better. Just eat a softer diet, try taking an NSAID like advil and alternate between hot/cold compress on the joint. ...Read more

I have a tight and sore jaw on right side and tight on left side. Also, ears ringing. Could there be a break and/or dislocation in my jaw? Pain incr.

Possible TMJ Problem: Unless you have a history of trauma to the face or jaws a break in the bones is highly unlikely. A dislocation of the disc or meniscus of the joint can be possible. Your symptoms suggest a possible TMJ disorder. An evaluation with your dentist would be recommended as the starting point to treat your problem. ...Read more
