Jaw pain

I'm 5 1/2 weeks pregnant and tonite I had horrible jaw pain. Like TMJ or something. I've never had it before. I now have a mild head ache from it. I took some Tylenol and hope that helps, anyone had anything like this. I'm sure it's nothing.....

Re: Jaw pain

I went through the same thing and was put on lortab for about 2 weeks and that didn't even touch the pain and I know I don't have a tolerance built up for it cause I don't even take aspirins unless I feel like it's the end of the world. But you should maybe get it checked out or mention something to your doctor about a dose pack of Steroids. I took those while pregnant and skipped the pain pills and it all just went away. I got checked for TMJ since two doctors said I had it, but my LPN wanted to make sure and had a MRI done of my jaw and it showed nothing. Thankfully! Just give your doc a nudge towards a dose pack of Prednisone. It's like less than a week's worth and it might do you more good than pain pills

Re: Jaw pain

I had the same thing a few weeks ago. It was weird I never thought of it being related to pg somehow. It went away after a good week 1/2

Re: Jaw pain

Do you have trouble with your sinuses? That happened to my mom, she went to the dentist and the dentist told her it wasn't anything from her jaw but it was related to sinuses. Her sinuses didn't feel flared up but they were enough for her to have jaw pain. So if you have had problems with sinuses before try taking something for that and see if that helps.
