Lower Left Jaw Pain, burning: I have recently started having pain in my lower left jaw. It feels like its in the bone.
I also have ear pain and a stiff sore neck up into the back of my head on the left side. The ear pain and neck problems just started, but I've also experienced feeling numb or burning pains in my left shoulder.
I don't have any hot/cold sensations when eating/drinking. My wisdom tooth was removed several years ago. Who can I see in Oklahoma? ...Visitor from OK
I suggest going to an oral surgeon and requesting a panoramic x-ray be taken of your teeth and TMJ (jaw joints).
Rule out abcesses and your occlusion as being the source of your pain. Then ask the oral surgeon for a referral to treat your dental problems.
If there aren't any dental causes of your pain, call a neurosurgeon and tell them you think you may have a problem with your cervical vertebra and/or your discs.
