Does anyone here get any swelling below their ears?I don't have any pain on my jaw joint or swelling,however I do below my ear starting at the ear lobe going dow to id say where the jaw turns.I don't hae a fever so i'e ruled out infection,does tmj do this?
I'm not on here much, but taking a break at work, decided to check this out. Yes, I have what you describe. It's my left side but along with that, I do have pain and some swelling next to my ear (sometimes with a slight earache feeling), headaches, upper back/neck aches. It's as if the left side of my face is a little fuller and droopy, or I have a swollen gland.
I have not been diagnosed, but the dentist did mention this years ago and I keep an eye on things. I do need to do something though. The weather really bothers my jaw area; when a storm is brewing or the temp drops, like in the next day or two. I'm feeling it! OTC pain meds and ice packs!
