TMJ: Your symptoms could be due to TMJ (temporomandibular joint dysfunction), which could be a result of many different factors. Teeth grinding is a more common cause. Ibuprofen can help with acute relief of pain, I would advise you to try using a dental night guard.

Since last two three days whenever I lift weight or use stairs, I feel pain in my lower jaw from chin to ears.

Watch your face: You are probably clenching when you do strenuous activities. Lots of people clench their teeth during strenuous activities and basically give themselves a case of temporal mandibular joint disorder which can cause jaw aches, ear aches and headaches. Try to relax when you lift and if the pain persists you should go see your doctor.

Not normal: Jaw swelling is usually accompanied by pain and is a sign of a deeper problem. Call your dentist and have it evaluated. If it is dental related, it can progress to become a significantly painful, progressive, and dangerous swelling. Antibiotics tend not to cure these, but a skilled dentist will diagnose and address the underlying causes.

Pain under ear while moving my lower jaw forward. Help?

Pain under ear while moving my lower jaw forward. Help?

See Your Dentist: What you are describing sounds like either an infection or trauma to your tempero-mandibular-joint (tmj). If you have been in an accident, or had trauma (a left hook?) to your jaw, your TMJ would have moved out of its socket. See your dentist or a TMJ specialist. This also could be caused if you grind/clench your teeth which would change your jaw's vertical dimension. A night guard may be needed.

Yawning causing pain from left side of the jaw to lower ear for seconds, and gone. What is the cause and is there any remedy or cure for this?

Yawning causing pain from left side of the jaw to lower ear for seconds, and gone. What is the cause and is there any remedy or cure for this?

Yawning & TMJ Pain: On maximal range of motion opening, patients sometimes can have "over translation" of the TMJ and this can result in an audible pop or click (actually anywhere within the rotational or translational period) or a brief burst of pain varying in intensity. This doesn't mean that you have a pathologic condition within one TMJ and should not be of too much concern unless it occurs with normal function.

Small hard lump under right ear behind lower jaw. Have had it for at least 5 years now. What could cause this and what affordable ways could treat it?

Many things: It could be a cyst, tumor, swollen lymph node, etc. Get a referral from your dr. For this to be biopsied, and removed properly. The fact it's been there for 5 yr leads me to believe it is not too serious, but get it removed.
