Default For some reason my jaw hurts when I eat and my cheek is a lil swollen

I don't know why, but my jaw only hurts when I eat anything and on the same side its a little swollen. Its been like this for a few days, I was hoping it would go away with time.

Could it be something to do with my wisdom teeth? last thing I heard from my dentist that they came in find with no problems. Lately Ive been playing alot of basketball and a few times I got hit in the face but right after there wasn't no pain.

Maybe my teeth or jaw shifted or something so its putting pressure on my jaw.

anyways I dunnno, has this ever happend to any of you?

Feel along your jaw along your gum for any bumps that aren't on the other said. It might be something to do with a muscle.

My gf has had the same thing for a while now and just the other day noticed there was a lump that when she massaged the pain would go away, the doctor said that it's some sort of muscle problem.

it could be an infection in your gum line. I have one right now as a matter of fact. 2 Advils ftw.

Could be a sinus infection.

Ear, nose throat are connect. My I get sick usually my first sign is my jaw gets soar and tight then after that my nose, eyes & ears start to bother me.

wisdom teeth can be a bitch, or be nothing. if they come in straight, you're good. if not, they gotta go.

when you go the dentist, get one of those 360 degree head xrays. not just the little "bite down on this" xrays

What's with the change? From 'tard posts to slightly less 'tard posts. Kudos. I guess all this ban talk is getting to you. LOL


OP it sounds like you simply may have hurt your masseter muscle since it only hurts when you are chewing or biting.

Oh man, I had a simliar problem a few days ago too. My gums were actually swollen from infection. I went to the dentist got an x-ray. Results were that my wisdom teeth was rubbing against my gums thus causing an infection. Hurt like a beeotch but since then I've taken meds and gotten better. Dentist recommend I take it out but I'll wait it out and if I get another infection im getting it pulled.

impacted wistom tooth. they have to be removed if they come out also. if they are pushing on the other teeth.

panoramic x ray it only dose like a 180 not a 360.

I had my wisdom teeth pulled 12 years ago...wow.

12 years ago I also had to deal with an oxycontin addiction. Not fun.

Doctor said wisdom teeth came out fine so they should not be bothering him. I think he may have been hit a bit too hard in one of those basketball games.

From personal experience and nearly 10 years of Judo; while practicing or competition you can get hit pretty bad in the face so I have had similar symptoms.

Welcome to the thread, Borat.

I was going to suggest to the OP that his symptoms sound like the beginning stages of herpes.

Fast forward to today, four days later and it seems like the pain is slowing going away, I can eat fine now. I still don't know why or how I hurt my jaw.

Could have just been a strain or could be wisdom teeth still.

I had mine pulled at 17. They were really bad. The pain would come and go. After the xrays the oral surgon said he was really surprised I could with that kind of pain and I must have a very high threshold but it wasn't constant. Would hurt for 2 or 3 days then stop for a few.

If you're in your late teens or young 20s and haven't had them pulled and have insurance I would get it checked out.

I got put in a sleeper hold, and my butt hurt the next day. Plus after finding the square root of an apartment in my architect class, I went to try on some cotton Dockers, but my wallet was missing. Fortunately, I get paid from my smoothy bar job tomorrow.
