I meant to say: I have been exercising 5 times per week. Sorry...
Gremel, the jaw pain could be "reffered" cardiac pain. You said you had a stress test. Did you have the pain during the stress test?
No I did not. The jaw pain usually occurs just before I get up in the morning and lasts until I get out of bed. After a brief activity or so, it goes away. I walked 6 miles today and did not have any jaw pain of any other symptom. I can't figure out what is happening.
Don't know if this is related to what's happening to you, but when I had my first episode of tachycardia I had pain radiating up my jaw. I also had pain in my back, shoulders, and arms. This was while my heart was racing. I have been diagnosed with Wolf Parkinsons White. They were able to see my WPW in 2 out of 6 EKG's that I've had so far. For me it comes and goes.
I went to see my cardiologist this past Monday after wearing a monitor for a few weeks. I previously had a Nuclear EKG and a bunch of other Chemical Alli tests done on me. Nothing showed until I went in for a briefing of my monitor results. I was told that she did not like the readings that were being given off and the jaw pain worried her. She recommended that I get a 'Cath job' done and set up the whole process for the following Tuesday morning.
The results of the Cath test showed that I had 90-95 percent blockage in my left Coronary artery.
They immediately prep'ed me for a Stint which I just got yesterday. I'm home and doing great. On Plavix medication and an 81 mg aspirin per day. It's hereditary and I had a brother who died at 38 yrs. old. I've exercised religiously for 30 years after my brother died and watched my weight and diet. SOooooo.......to make a long story short, I was really pissed and told the Cardiologist: "Well that's my reward after all these years of exercising, no fat, 20 Percent Body Fat, 120/80 B.P., 63 pulse, workouts 1hr 30 min. 5 times per week, tennis 2 times per week and weight lifting 3 times per week.
His answer was: If you had not been working out and doing the exercise etc., we probably would not be in this room talking together. He said a lot of it is due to heredity but what you were doing was extremely instrumental in saving you from a possible catastrophic heart attack.
Bottom line: If you have jaw pain, it's either your teeth or your heart.
