: I have sero-negative inflammatory arthritis. It
affects almost every joint in my body. Feet,
knees,hips, shoulders, fingers, neck and jaws.
Recently, though, my worst pain has come from neck
and jaw joint pain which causes me to have a
constant headache. The jaw joint pain is also
affecting my teeth and causing them to ache badly.
Chewing is difficult and eating is becoming a
challange. My jaw joints are swollen and painful.
Has anyone else experienced bad jaw joint and
teeth pain? Any help would be greatly
Yes, to the bad jaw pain but no to the teeth. Have you gone to the dentist to rule out any infection? Once you know the dentist has ruled out any problems he might be able to help you with then it might be time to ask your regular doc or Rheumy for some pain relief until the flare settles down.
Do you have any red patches on your skin? If so have they been tested to see if you have psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis?
