Brief Answer:
I would exclude any cardiac issues.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

Welcome back to Ask a Doctor service!

Considering your description, I would exclude any cardiac issues, as it is very atypical to have only jaw pain in cardiac disorders.

I would also like to know if the pain is triggered by chewing hard food or by mouth opening ?

If the pain is triggered by hard food or even if it occurs spontaneously it could be related to a tooth infection.

If it is triggered by mouth opening, I would this about temporo- mandibular joint inflammation.

If this pain persists, I would recommend consulting with a dentist and exclude the above mentioned possible causes.

Hope you will find this answer helpful!

I remain at your disposal for any further questions whenever you need!

Wishing all the best,

The pain comes and goes even if I am doing nothing I find I have it more in the morning

I have been told I grind my teeth and have tmj but just wanted to make sure that it was not cardiac related

Brief Answer:
It seems to be related to your TMJ.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

As a cardiologist, I would exclude any cardiac issues.

I am pretty sure that it is related to your TMJ and teeth grinding. This explains also why you feel it more in the morning.

Let me know in case of any further uncertainties!

Wishing a nice weekend,

8n my opinion this kind of pain is related to fibromyalgia or acid reflux.

I don't think that it is related to the heart .

So try to relax and don't worry about it!

If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask me again!
