Wow. That's really odd. So, if my jaw allignment is off , which it may be because I think I may grind my teeth in my sleep, then rather than feeling the pain in the jaw (like in the hinge), it shows up as a toothache. An unbelievable toothache. That makes sense because it seems to begin with my 3rd lower left mplar, and then about twnety minutes to half hour ir shows uo directly above it and is even more painful. That pain lasts till I can get some neuralgia meds into me, which knock me on my butt (amyltriplilene.)I've gone through all of my ambesol, a bottle of clove oil and will be running out for more shortly (when the stores open). Then I'll call Dentist. Yhanks Sus2z
Sorry your having so much pain! I know what your going through as I get this too. It comes and goes. Lasting anywhere from a week or two to just a few days. I get most of my pain in the right side and it affects anywhere from 1 tooth to 4 teeth. And it gets bad!!! And the pain can go deep into my ear also. I do have TMJ and grind my teeth at night. I wear a mouthpiece and before I got fibro the mouthpiece helped alot, and now the piece does very little. The only thing I have done for it is make sure your taking something for the pain consistently, warm packs to the jaw and just ride it out.
How are you feeling now? GamJill
