Mine was the same, it was on the hinge. At times it felt very stiff and difficult to move, like I had been chewing gum for several days none stop. If I went out into cold air, the pain would move right across the lower jaw and it felt as though all my teeth had infections.

I have chest pain that radiates into the left arm pit,thru to the back shoulder blade and sharply up to the left lower jaw in area of lower second bicuspid and first molar.It can also radiate into my left cheekbone. It can be mild,or severe,and not all signs together or in sequence and usually accompanies chest tightness/crushing and shortness of breath. Women can be very different from men in their signs, having only tiredness of a symptom of an impending cardiac event.Joan.
