Strange Jaw pain (both sides) - Doctor or Dentist?
For the past 2 nights I have had a dull ache along my jaw, equally as sore on both sides. It only came on at night today, I did not notice it during the day. I also have a bit of a throbbing sensation at the back of my jaw and half way down towards my chin tonight - both sides same, and feels like it is near back teeth (top and bottom). Not agony, just discomfort ache.
I have also had 2 small lumps (only milimetres in diametre and height) on the roof of my mouth that have been a bit tender to touch or eat with, had them for 3 days, but used salt water yesterday and today they are almost gone and so is the tenderness in that spot.
Any ideas? Does this sound like a dental problem or maybe a virus or something (had bad stomach upset last 4 days and bit tired but no other muscle problems)? Last trip to dentist was 6mth ago, and had xrays etc, so I can't imagine my whole mouth would have so much trouble it is painful in all areas very suddenly?? So Doctor or Dentist? Immediately or give it a few more days?
Thanks for your help.
