Dental shot lower rear of jaw 9 days ago. When numb wore off, all of bottom teeth on same side are very sensitive&burning pains on tmj/jaw/back of head?

Advil (ibuprofen): When we give a lower injection, we go through 2 muscles that can become sore, especially if there is movement in the lower jaw during the injection. This is called trismus. Holding your mouth open for a long time is unnatural and can cause pain. I suggest over the counter pain meds. If no relief see your dentist next week. Read more

Coincidental lump?: Your headache has some features of migraine including being unilateral (one sided) and throbbing. However, there are multiple types of headaches which can share these features as well. None of the classical headache types are associated with a "hard small lump" on the same side of the headache. For this reason you should consult a doctor to determine if this is related or just a coincidental. Read more
