For about a month now, I've had a throbbing sensation coupled with, at times, tingling over my left ear (possibly the corpus callosum?). When I put my hand over the area, I can feel it throbbing. There's no pain associated with it. I'm 29 y.o. and need to have my wisdom teeth taken out; I plan to do that this year. I've had occasional jaw popping (usually on the left side) followed by immediate sharp pain and then dull pain lasting a while longer. This hasn't happened in probably 2 months, and it doesn't concern me as much as the throbbing. Is the throbbing a symptom that sounds like it could be related to problems with my wisdom teeth? During my last dentist visit about a month or so ago, I was told I don't likely have TMJ. Thanks.
Dear mamspajamas, From the symptoms you express , it does not seem that this is associated with your wisdom teeth. Thisis only conjecture on my part without examining you. It is either something medical or it might be involved with your TMJ.If the symptoms do not abate I would consider seeing your physcian. I also feel that the TMJ area should be investigated by a specialist.
