Hi there. This just started? In all honesty, I think this is important to get checked out. There is a variety of things that can case lower jaw pain. First, you need to make sure your teeth are okay! Yes, on both sides. You have to rule out something going on with that. Then TMJ comes to mind. And even your heart can be involved with lower jaw pain. Here is an article to read. But the one that would concern me to immediately rule out is a cardiovascular reason. Women in particular can have lower left jaw pain during a heart attack. Now, I know this isn't presenting exactly that way for you but still is worth checking out. If you have any other symptoms with it like shortness of breath or chest discomfort, please go to the ER.
The one thing that I think is fairly common is nerve compression called Trigeminal neuralgia. This is a big reason we get jaw pain.
Does ibuprofen help the pain? What about massage to the area?
And with all that being said. fibro and jaw pain is very common because of tmj or Temporomandibular joint disorder. Your doctor will likely be really familiar with the correlation.
Do you do any supplements like magnesium or calcium?
Here is an article that talks about treatments of TMJ. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/tmj/diagnosis-treatment/drc-20350945 I think it would be worth working with a physical therapist that has treated jaw pain like this before. And medication can be very helpful.
Hi Nickie. How are you doing? How is this pain? Is it any better?
