HI there,
        For the past week or so I have had a really bad aching jaw,more so up near my ears.Its really annoying me now mad ...And yes...I know this is a classic anxiety sympton but the wierd thing is I have been feeling great for a long while now.I do have the odd 'off' day but nothing compared to what I used to feel like. I am not clenching/tensing it up that I am aware and it is not as bad in the morning! I dont know!...If its not one thing its the other..lol

hmm...

are you having headaches along with the jaw pain?

Sounds like it could be TMJ disorder.

Imitating a yawn and stretching the jaw by opening slowly and as wide as you can several times can help relieve the tension and pain.

If you press on where your jaw joints connect near your ears underneath the bone that sticks out more than the lower... and open your jaw... if there is pain... you could have TMJ...

talk to your doc or dentist about what to do for it.. there are many options...

I had really bad jaw pain a while back and it was due to me clenching my teeth in my sleep.  My wisdom teeth also give me pain in my jaw as they are pushing through

I get a lot of jaw ache due to tension , at one time I also used to grind my teeth in my sleep.
