Ear and jaw pain
I wasn't sure where to post this. I have been having some weird symptoms the past 6 weeks. It started out with a toothache, but two visits to the dentist came up with nothing. The pain started to spread throughout my jaw and back toward my ear. It has also increased, and I am taking ibuprofen all day for the pain. Also, at the same time, I started having this weird sound in my right ear (same side as pain) that a doctor told me is pulsatile tinnitus. I can hear wooshing or buzzing noises that coincide with my heartbeat, but only when lying down, and only on my right side. I will be seeing an ENT doctor next week, and they have given me pain meds, but I am really confused. Could it just be TMJ? I do have a clicking sound in my jaw, but that joint does not hurt, and I have had no problems before. The pain is more in my lower jaw. Has anyone experienced anything like this? It has really become quite bothersome. I would appreciate any advice.
