Jaw Pain

I had a wisdom tooth removed 2 weeks ago and while the pain I experienced in the back of my mouth is gone, I have pain in the front of my mouth that will not go away.  It was one of my lower wisdom teeth that was removed and now my front 4, bottom teeth hurt terribly.  Could this be caused by shifting?  I'm really confused and tired of being in pain.  Any suggestions?

This is likely to be temporary as the wisdom teeth can develop close to the nerve that connects to all the lower teeth. While that area is healing the nerve can be irritated and thus giving you pain signals to other teeth in the lower jaw. You should have your surgeon/dentist check for any signs of delayed healing in the sockets and or infection.

You know I may also be TMJ, that's what I have,the worst case. I get pain in my jaw, headaches, sometimes throat pain, and ear pain, and back pain, you'll know if you have it by pressure on your side jaw(both sides) Just my oppinion.
