Diagnosed with sinus tachycardia, no treatment, gave up smoking, stone overweight, jaw pain. Cause and cure?

I am a 37year old women, diagnosed a couple of years ago with sinus tachycardia , no treatment, gave up smoking two years ago, 3 stone overweight. Past week have woken up with jaw pain on my left side, which abates during the day. No history of clenching teeth nor grinding when asleep, slight discomfort in left elbow and shoulder, but not sure if I would have noticed if not for the jaw pain, concerned it could be heart related. Father had heart attack at 51. Or is this jaw pain dental related?

Hi,

Thanks for asking the query,

Pain in the jaws is not related to heart diseases.
It may occur due to infectious lesions like tooth abscess gingival lesions draining in the oral cavity,
there could be presence of cysts and beningn and malignant lesions in the jaw, dislocation of the jaw, impacted wisdom tooth.
I would suggest you to visit the Dentist and get the checkup done.
Exact diagnosis can be made on clinical and radiological examination .
For tachycardia you need to consult a Physician and get the checkup done.

Hope this helps out.

Regards..

Hello,
Thanks for writing in.
Jaw pain is usually not associated with heart related diseases.
This may be caused from-
dislocation of jaws due to biting on hard objects.
Opening mouth too widely.
Impacted wisdom tooth which is infected.
I would suggest you to get a detailed clinical examination done.
Please avoid mouth opening too widely.
Maintain good oral hygiene.
Avoid stress to jaws.
Hope this helps.

Hello there ,

Thanks for writing your query,

Pain in jaw may be due infected tooth and indicates the spread of infection to the jaws.

There can be infective lesions related to tooth like periodontal abscess or gingival abscess draining in the oral cavity.
bening or malignant swellings of the jaws .

cysts of the jaws , related to tooth or bone may also lead to pain in jaws.

exact diagnosis can be made only after clinical examination and evaluation by taking radiographs.

i would suggest you to get and OPG radiograph done which will help in diagnosis and accordingly treatment can be planned .
consult an oral surgeon and get the examination done,

For other medical problems like tachycardia and overwight you need to consult a physician .

i hope this helps ,

take care.
