Hi,

Jaw pain with limb pain may be possible with injury to the brachial plexus. Temporal arteritis or carotid artery atherosclerosis may also present like this. Cool extremity may be due to vascular compromise may be seen atherosclerosis or subclavian steal syndrome etc. Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is. please consult your neurophysician/vascular surgeon they will examine and treat you accordingly.
