Brief Answer:
May be a nutritional deficiency

Detailed Answer:
Hi Mam,
I
The symptoms suggest that you may be suffering from the nutritional deficiency. But to rule out other causes you may go for the thorough ENT check up or send me the snap of your mouth and tongue. I would order Blood sugar level, Vitamin assay, Mineral and hematological investigations. We can discuss about it during the follow up.

Thanks

I noticed the roof of my mouth was sore and a little swollen on the right side earlier this evening. I was pushing on it a little with my tongue because the pressure stopped the throbbing. But then all of a sudden the pain spread to my jaw and inner ear. I went to sleep and was woken up to a horrible throbbing pain in my upper right molars (about 3 or 4 teeth).
