Pounding pain on right vein near the temple - pain in jaw - pain in right ear

I have had a terrible ear ache with my right ear for a month or two. I wen't to the doctors, but everything was normal. A few weeks later i started getting a serious pain in my jaw on the right side. When I talk or open my mouth it cracks and makes a stretching noise in my ear. Now I am getting a horrible pain on the right side of my head that is a pounding/thumping pain that is constant. It feels as if my vein isn't letting the blood flow through that specific area and it is trying to force the blood through. It is a bad pain. I take pain medicine for it ( tylenol, advil, aleve, ibu profen ) Could this be something serious ?

Yes, this may be temporal arteritis, an inflammation of the arteries.
This is considered an emergency, because it may cause sudden blindness.
You can do a google search for this, that will show symptoms and treatment.
Please call your doctor with your new symptoms, and say that a retired nurse thought it sounded like temporal arteritis -- I bet he'll see you right away.

Wishing you the best,
Carol

Some people have mentioned it might be from stress. I was recently at my sisters house for about a week and I was sleeping on her couch and also didn't eat very well. I just found out my mother has MS, alot of arguing has been happening with a few of my close friends. Could these symptoms ( mainly the headache ) be cause by stress ?

Stress can reduce the effectiveness of your immune system.
But you still need to call your doctor.

Donna, Temporal Arteritis is not arthritis.
Arteritis is inflammation of the arteries.
