Need help! I have had a swollen glands under my right ear by my jaw. Pain in my sinuses. Lumps on the roof of my mouth. Imflammed nostrals. 3yrs?

3 years?: Many of these are signs of inflammation/infection, but other causes cannot be ruled out without further information, history and direct examination. I am surprised that you have had them for three years...I would strongly recommend a visit to your family doc for a comprehensive history and physical exam and possibly some lab work-up. Also, perhaps a visit to the dentist.. ...Read more

Mononucleosis is a possibility

I've had sore glands, jaw pain, and ear pain for almost 2 weeks. Dr diagnosed as sinus/middle ear infection but z pack didn't help. What should I do?

I've had sore glands, jaw pain, and ear pain for almost 2 weeks. Dr diagnosed as sinus/middle ear infection but z pack didn't help. What should I do?

Try again: A middle ear infection should include decreased hearing. Pus in the nose running over the opening to the eustachian tube could cause ear pain. If it's mainly jaw pain it may be TMJ and not infection at all. See an ENT and get a good nasal exam. You may want to call your doctor first and see if he wants to try a second antibiotic. A z pak could miss some important bacteria. ...Read more

TMJ possible: Ear and jaw pain are clasic signs of tmj. Lack of molar support on the affected side can cause dislocation of the jaw and be the source of ear and jaw pain. If the jaw becomes dislocated muscle will come into play and splint the joint by tightening on the affected side and also refer pain to distant sites on the head and neck of that side. See a qualified dentist that treats tmj. ...Read more
