I have horrible pain in my lower right jaw. It's been hurting a lot for a few days now, but prior to this I had some pain in my farthest back molar and some minor jaw pain. The wisdom tooth is still under the gum in this area. I got x-rays done to check on them in august and everything seemed ok alignment-wise. I don't really know what to think if this. It's very, very tender to the touch, and also really hurts when i'm not doing anything. Does this sound like some sort of wisdom tooth issue? or more like a jaw issue? (**I grind my teeth in my sleep alot, so I'm not sure if that could have have anything to do with it)
