Can't open mouth: Tetanus is pretty rare and requires that you had a cut and it was infected with spores typically found in dirt. It is very severe, you become unable to open your mouth or even swallow your saliva, and muscle spasms you can't control.
If you might have been exposed (had a cut) then you should get checked and at least have a booster shot. ...Read more

Hello! My jaw has been hurting on the left side, all day yesterday and all of today. It seems to hurt the most when I turn my head to the right.?
