Detailed Answer:
Hi..
Thanks for the query..

As per your complain pain in jaw that is radiating to eye and neck can be either related to any decayed tooth or can be due to due to jaw joint related problems..

Please provide the following details so that I can guide you better..

1. Do you ave any decayed tooth or a hole in tooth or black discolouration in tooth and is the pain in upper jaw or lower jaw?
2.Is there any swelling in cheek present?
3.Is the pain always present or does it occurs on chewing?
4. Do you have any clicking sound in ear when chewing or opening and closing the mouth?
5. Do you have reduced mouth opening or pain on opening the mouth wide?

Please revert back with answers..

Brief Answer:
Pain is due to decayed tooth only..

Detailed Answer:
Hi..
Welcome back..
As per your explanation, the pain is due to decayed teeth only and pain in ear and neck is radiating pain from the decayed tooth site..

You should consult an Oral Physician and get evaluated and get x rays of the decayed teeth done.

If teeth cannot be saved which looks to be apparent with your explanation then extraction of the same should be done..

If there is any chance of saving the tooth/teeth then Root canal treatment will be done..

Either of the treatments will be followed by a course of antibiotics and painkillers..

As of now you can take anti-inflammatory pain killers like Ibuprofen or Naproxen for pain relief..
Take soft diet..

Hope this information helps..

Brief Answer:
You can go for injectable pain relievers..

Detailed Answer:
Hi..
Welcome back..

In case if painkillers are not helping you then you can consult an Emergency service and get injectable painkillers..

Also you can get higher painkillers that can help in relieving severe acute pain like Tramadol, Ketorolac etc..

Hope this helps..

I am having sever stomach pain, it started several weeks ago and has gotten gradually worse. I have no insurance, so I went to the county hospital last week. Once in the emergency room, they ran blood tests to check for H-pilori bacteria. Those were negative. They sent me home with antacids. I went back and the doctor told me I was a drug addict and binge drinker. This was what I get for that. I don t understand the closed mindedness. I don t do either. Never have, although I understand their typical patient. However, I am not one of those, I just have to herd with the cattle at county. I have chronic heart burn, and acid reflux. I most likely take more ibuprofen than I should(historically) and have stopped in the last month after learning more about the side effects. I am highly stressed and have patches of hair falling out on my beard, and head for the last 4 years now. More than likely these are contributors to this problem. Now I am in more pain, and throwing up small amounts of blood. Should I go back to ER? Demand CT, and scope of my stomach? What do I do?

Hi, I am 30 years old. I have been more and more swollen for the past week and tonight is unbearable. Tylenol and ibuprofen aren t helping much. I m so drained and tired but have trouble sleeping at night. I m also catching myself snapping and frustrated. And a mild headache just nagging in the back ground for 3 days. What could be wrong with me? What can I do or try that may help?

I DO NOT have pain/buring/stinging voiding but I am voiding large amounts frequently at times. The other day I swear I voided 500mLs every 30 minutes at least. I am getting a pressure in my pelvic region at times that is painful and makes me feel the need to empty my bladder but I dont have anything in my bladder to void. Trying seems to help relieve some of the discomfort. Sometimes when I get this pain which had a rapid onset I then get rapid abodominal bloating that goes away shortly after, anywhere up to an hour. I am getting pelvic region pain after sex of late and had 10/10 pain in my back on the left hand side probably between the top of my hip and bottom of my rib cage a few days ago that was relieved with ibuprofen and paracetamol. Urinalysis showed SG 1.025, pH 5.5 and Leucocytes small. What might be causing this?
