Brief Answer: Due to inflammation of the joint. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for posting your query. The acute pain in the jaw like you are having at your age is most commonly found due to an inflammation of the T-m joint. This can happen due to arthritis or gout. You need to get your serum uric acid levels evaluated and take mild anti inflammatory pain killers like ibuprofen after meals. Doing a hot fomentation in the area will be helpful. Avoid taking alcohol and non vegetarian food. Taking citrus fruits will help in reducing the symptoms. I hope this answers your query.
