Jaw pain during pregnancy

Okay, has anyone else had jaw pain during pregnancy. I am having it on the right side and it hurts worse when I talk or when I eat. Just started today. However, jaw pain can also be a major symptom of a heart attack in women. What is your opinions. Anyone else?

I had it alot.  Although I have bad problems with my jaw before pregnancy.  I have problems with the TMJ.  While pregnant it flared up and hurt so bad.  I took a tylenol a day and selpt with a heat pack for almost two weeks.  I also got on a antibiotic, because I thought maybe it could be a tooth infection.  But it finally went away.  I was also one of those withreally bad carpal tunnel, so I think all my joints were whacked out during pregnancy.  I would maybe make an appt with you doc if it persists.
