Suggesions: Sounds like you're on the right pathway. There are other reasons for facial paralysis. Most patients completely recover. If you are not recovering, seek evaluation by an ENT doc or neurologist.

See dentist first: Suggest you see a dentist ASAP. At age 19, third molar eruption or impaction is always a possibility. You state that the state of your dentition is poor, perhaps, caries or gingival issues is the problem in addition. Last but not least, sinus issues can mimic upper tooth pain. If this is the issue, you will be referred to an ENT. Try the most basic first and see the dentist.

I've had a headache/upper jaw pain for a month now. I went and had a decayed tooth pulled but am still having pain in my temple on that side.

See your dentist: You did not say how long ago the tooth was extracted. There may be a residual infection, there may be another complication, or it just may be normal healing. All the best...

Started having pain in my left upper jaw, pain has gradually moved up to my left eye and it is swollen and tender to touch?

Under your eye?: If the area under your eye is swollen and tender there is a very good chance you have an abscess, and it might be coming from a maxillary posterior tooth. You need to be evaluated ASAP and put on antibiotics. Please call for an appointment.

Woke up with back pain left side. Hurts to breathe. Neck jaw tingling. 26 yo. Been 10 hours. How to tell its my heart?? Heart attack?

Chest pain: Best to go to the doc and get checked out. Many possibilities and heart attack isn't high on the list for a 26y/o but not impossible. Pleural and pericardial inflammation are real as well as other things.

Swollen left tonsil, pain left side of my Adam's apple. Hurts to touch, swallow, turn my head to the right. Does this sound like a thyroid issue?

Swollen left tonsil, pain left side of my Adam's apple. Hurts to touch, swallow, turn my head to the right. Does this sound like a thyroid issue?

Not thyroid: Your thyroid is in a different place than your tonsils. You may have a tonsil abscess. You need to see your doctor or an ENT for further evaluation. If you have a tonsil abscess it may need to be drained. Your thyroid effects your metabolism--weight, energy, concentration, mood. If it is swollen it could cause you to have trouble swallowing. It should not cause problems with the tonsil.

2 complex 4 shrt ans: Need to ask u many questions about chest and armpit Sx to parse out possible causes. Too little info to say whether or not your heart may be involved. Your doctor taking a complete history and doing a complete physical can definitely arrive at some answers.
