Hi I am 30 years old and have been having some jaw pain, up by my TMJ joint. I do have some anxity and have been known to grit my teeth somtimes. It is kindof an achy pain. I don't have any pain in my chest, neck, or arms, and I am not short of breath. I have heard that heart problems have been known to just cause jaw pain. I was wondering where that pain was and what it felt like, and If that was true. I have been to the doctor and was put on a heart moniter for a week, I have pvc's. Since I have been diagnosed with pvc's and I know what they are I am not worried about them anymore. But this pain is bothering me.
I know your pain all too well...I have TMJ and three surgeries later I still have some pain. I grind my teeth bad at night so I do wear a mouthguard. I suggest liquid diet for about a week to see if that helps and put heat on both sides of your jaws that always seems to help me. No chewing gum or ice! I hope this helps.
