Since I was little, when ever I would run or be in more stenuous dance routines, I would experience an aching pain in my lower teeth and jaw. It has persisted through today, where it now sets in very quickly while jogging or in an aerobics class. I never really thought anything of it, seeing as it had been like that kindergarten PE classes and I'm now 21. However, I happened to mention it to a family member, who immediately freaked out, saying I could have a serious heart condition.
I was diagnosed with asthma when I was in high school, and always thought it was just a symptom of that, but have come to realize that my asthma medication has no effect on the pain.
Like I said I'm 21, am at a healthy weight, and have a very healthy blood pressure.
Is this something I should get checked out, or am I worrying over nothing?
