I've had jaw pain on the right side right below my ear whenever I open my mouth wide, not when I clench my teeth. It's getting more painful what is it?

TMJ????

It is possible that the disc of the temperomandibular joint (TMJ)is dislocated and causing you pain which would occur in mouth opening. Find a good Fellow trained TMJ specialist in your area.

Pain is your bodies way of texting you that there's something wrong. It may be infection. It may be muscle/joint dysfunction. It may be parafunctional habits. If problem getting worse, the severity of the problem is increasing. Call both your Dentist and your Physician for initial examinations. They may Rx your problem(s) and/or refer you to specialists for further evaluation and testing.

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

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

Yes, It's Possible

Jaw_pain
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!

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

A Few Things

Ear_pain
With that history it could be many things...Most Likely causes include... 1. TMJ Disorder 2. Sinusitis 3.Ear Infection I would recommend a MD visit first to check ear and sinuses, then dentist if those are OK. This is common as pain in the head can come from many sources and the actual cause can take a bit of diagnostic detective work.

Possible TMJ

Open-uri20130306-30122-8sr50g
The way your teeth meet, may need adjustment, so possibly you favor one side or possibly clench or grind your teeth. Temporomandibular joint / muscles -problems can present these symptoms. See a dentist for an evaluation. Try to keep a log of what your were doing immediately prior to each "event" as this may help you or your dentist determine if any harmful habit is causing your problem.

You have all the symptoms of an acute infection, although there are other possibilities. It is impossible to say for sure without a clinical examination and x-rays. You should see your dentist or an oral surgeon ASAP.

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

Nsaids
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.

Jaw and Muscle Pain

Stringio
It appears that you have a serious TMJ and Muscle dysfunction that causes these muscles to go into a spasm and the Jaw Joint (TMJ) to be misaligned. You seriously need treatment from a Dentist that is very skilled at treating TMJ. Only about 5% of Dentist are really good in this realm in that they are very familiar with multiple treatment options to select from based on the patient needs.
