Could you please explain in detail your jaw pain. I have bad jaw pain which in the past has been caused by sinus problems, but now the doctors are telling me that my jaw pain is not from sinuses. I'm confused. I'm in a lot of pain and need some answers. Sometimes my pain affects my top teeth and sometimes it affects the bottom. It just plain moves around. My muscle relaxer (Flexeril) does not help it, but often I think I must be tensing the muscles in my face and causing the pain somehow. Tylenol definately helps. Sometimes it feels like my top and lower jaw are not lined up, but my dentist has never noticed anything or commented on crooked teeth etc. The pain really can't be being caused by a tooth since the pain floats all around my jaw. I have tried Sensodyne toothpaste thinking that maybe I was just having some sort of tooth sensitivity, but even this did not provide relief. The doctor felt my jaw and couldn't find anything wrong with it. He told me to try to ignore the pain especially if it came and went, but to let him know if it gets progressively worse. The problem is that I don't like being in pain as often as I'm in it which is usually at least once a day for several hours. IF your pain is anything like mine, maybe it is my Crohn's causing it.
