Does running correlate to jaw pain?

Does running correlate to jaw pain?

It can: I have been a runner for years, and there are instances where clenching during running can occur. Also, the jarring of running on cement, can affect posture and other movements, creating an imbalance. Also, many runners these days cross train. Other activities, like lifting weights can cause you to clench, causing jaw pain. You might want to consider a custom mouthpiece for your activities.

Chest & jaw pain when running, cardiologist said heart is fine, gave me an inhaler, doesn't really help. 16, female, healthy. Always had this problem.

Chest & jaw pain when running, cardiologist said heart is fine, gave me an inhaler, doesn't really help. 16, female, healthy. Always had this problem.

Probably chest wall: If the inhalers don't relieve or prevent the symptoms it's most likely chest wall or muscle pain. It can be aggravated by holding the muscles tense. Try to breathe with your abdominal muscles and control your breathing pattern when you exercise.

I have sharp shooting pains in my left ear, jaw pain and now pain is running down my neck and my head behind my ear going toward the top of my head. What is the problem???!

Need for evaluation: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you. You should consult a doctor at your earliest. Women often have atypical pain from heart disease and that needs to be excluded.

TMJ: Likely TMJ, which can be serious. Something more serious? You need an exam to know for sure. See a board certified oral surgeon for diagnosis. He can treat you, or refer you.

Why does my jaw hurt after root canal therapy?

A lot of reasons: If you had a bad infection to start with, yes you may still have lingering effects. If the treatment was difficult or f the dentist could not for any reasons clean all the canals all the way. And in general it is normal to experience some mild pain for a few days or a week depending on your case and your pain tolerance. Pain killers should usually help good luck.

Why does my jaw hurt two weeks after a root canal?

Why does my jaw hurt two weeks after a root canal?

Many possibilities: Root canal treatment can stimulate an inflammatory reaction. This can be bacterially induced, traumatically induced or both. The important question is what is the cause of your current pain. I suggest you return to the doctor that treated you for a detailed exam and diagnosis. Normal inflammation from trauma usually subsides in 7-14 days. Good luck.

Why does my jaw hurt sooooooooo much after a root canal treatment?

May be usual, but...: There generally is pain after the local anesthetic wears off; the dentist should explain and warn about that depending how invasive the procedure is, whether he had to clear out infection, or abscess at the root. He should also give you a script for pain medication appropriate to the procedure, and appropriate to his knowledge of your pain threshold and ability to handle pain. Call, get advice.

Why does my jaw hurt when I wake up in the morning but I don't have any teeth problem? What is the treatment for this problem?

Night Bruxism: Also called night time clenching, may cause pain in the tooth wear, teeth movement and even damage or break teeth. Currently, no therapy has been proven effective in treating sleep bruxism. See your dentist for night guard fabrication for teeth protection. Good luck.

Why might the side of my jaw hurt in the night?

Why might the side of my jaw hurt in the night?

Popping is a Symptom: Popping is wear and tear damage to the TMJ temporo-mandibular joint. Clenching, grinding, bruxism can damage the joint as well as excessive gum chewing. Both normal and excessive wear of the teeth can lead to changes in the bite that may have pain and popping of the tmj. See a dentist trained in diagnosing TMJ problems, preferably one who use the t-scan to record tooth contact timing and pressures.
