I have been getting this fairly constant, extremely sharp pain in one area on the left side of my head only. I also will get random, but intense jaw pain of the left side as well. I do not have any vision changes, or nausea or vomiting. What could be causing this to persist?
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
If along with jaw pain you have headache then it could be due to TMJ or even due to heart attack (if you have a chest discomfort, even without it, it would be wiser to get this evaluated). The other possibility is trigeminal neuralgia. It could also be a pinched cervical spinal nerve. It is difficult to comment beyond this on net. You will have to consult a neurologist and your physician to rule this out one by one.
Hope this helps. Do let me know if there is any thing else and keep me posted. Take care!
