In brief: Left side radiating

Jaw pain is a common symptom of heart attacks.
The pain is usually on the left side and feels like it is radiating to the adjacent organs around the jaw including the back or chest, arms or neck. Heart attacks are caused by blood obstructions in your heart muscle which causes pressure, cramping and squeezing discomfort in your chest and surrounding organs up to your jaw.
