Things to Look At if You Get Regular Jaw PainIf you have regular jaw pain and regular headaches, you may suffer from cluster headaches. This can radiate from behind the eyes into the jaw, and can be very painful. If your jaw pain comes with headaches, make sure to get both checked out.
Infections in the face can cause your jaw to hurt. This can include an abscess, sinus infection, ear infection, and even an infection of your eye. Don't hesitate to go in and get checked if you suspect an infection, as it could literally save your life.
A heart attack can also show up as jaw pain. This is especially true in women, who tend to have fewer ‘traditional’ symptoms of a heart attack. If you suddenly get pain in your jaw, along with any feeling such as a tightness or pressure in your chest or struggling to take a deep breath, go in and get checked out immediately. It isn’t worth the risk of waiting.
Jaw pain can be a simple problem, but it can also signal other issues. Don’t try and live with pain. Instead, go in and get the problem diagnosed. It may be something easy to fix, allowing you to live a life without pain. If you have any questions, or if you would like to learn more, please call us today at (303) 422-2990.
