Jaw pain, neck pain, pain radiating. Taking ibuprofen. Are these related?

I am a 21 year old female experiencing immense jaw pain as well as left shoulder/neck pain. Both pains have been persistent for 4 days now. I have taken Ibuprofen and used ice packs but neither seems to help. The jaw pain is on the left and right side, radiating back and forth. The shoulder pain is at the top of the shoulder, going into the left side of my neck. I'm not sure if the two could be related. Help?

Hi,

Thanks for asking the query,

Jaw pain can be due to infected tooth there could be a chance of impacted wisdom tooth.
Visit to the Oral Surgeon and get the checkup done take an OPG radiograph.
Take a course of analgesics.
