I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

Is jaw pain along with dizziness a matter of concern?

My husband is 59 and had been complaining of some light dizziness, light headedness for a couple of days. Today he also complained of jaw pain (he did not wear his dental guard last night) Should I be concerned? Just checked his blood pressure and it was normal.

Jaw pain may be due to temporomandibular joint arthritis or angina pain radiating to jaw or it may be gingivitis or root canal infection etc.

Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is. Please consult your dental surgeon/physician, they will take ECG/X-ray of your jaw and then he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hello. I just went to my chiropractor because my jaw hurts terribly. I thought it was misaligned. My doc said my lymph nodes were swollen along my neck. I cannot chew solid food right now due to jaw pain. I am also dizzy and have had nausea on and off. Do I just need some good R&R or sholdl I be making an appointment to see my regular doc?

husband got hit by a baseball in the side of the neck and now has pain in the opposite side jaw and upper shoulder area. He did bite his tongue close to jaw linewhen it happened, so that could account for jaw pain, no pain or bruising at impact site, however. I ve read that we might be concerned about restricted flow due to possible injury to blood vessels, but no other symptoms other than what I ve described. Are there any immediate concerns?

Last week, I thought I was starting to get a cold (my throat was a little sore on my left side, my lymph node under my jaw on the left side started to hurt & I had a slight ear ache on my left side). Then, 2 days ago, I started having really bad pain in my lower left jaw (sometimes it feels like the pain is in a tooth, but I really can t tell). My left jaw is slightly swollen & I m concerned it might be an infection, but I also have a history of jaw pain & wonder if I ve just been really clenching my jaw & that s what s causing the pain. How do I know if it s just jaw pain (tmj) or tooth pain?
