I recently started having jaw pain, and since I see my rheumy tomorrow, I'm going to ask him about it. I'm not sure if it's RA-related or not. It started about 3 weeks ago with mild pain on both sides. That lasted just a few days, and then my left side pain disappeared but my right side pain started getting worse, and now it's much worse, but just on one side. I wear a full upper denture, and a lower partial. I haven't been to a dentist in about 2 1/2 years, and my dentures don't fit quite right, so it could very well be a dental problem-I really don't know, but it's starting to hurt like the dickens. I'll post again after I talk to my rheumy & see what he says. That's all I can do at this point, so good luck!
