trying to exercise..walking..

livvyandbellaMay 1, 2005

I am trying to walk for exercise. My Dr. said that would be the best exercise to do. My goal should be a mile a day. I think that is a good plan. The only problem is, when I walk, I have pain in my jaws, both of them. They ache, kind of like a bottom full of toothaches. Any idea what that is? Could it be something wrong with my jaw?

Do you have well cushioned shoes? Are you walking on concrete sidewalks or dirt and grass. I am thinking that's it's a matter of jarring your jaw with the impact of your foot on the walking surface. However, it would be a good idea to have your dentist check this out. You might be starting to have a problem with alignment, abcess or something else. Maybe walking with a good wad of gum in your mouth would help.

I have been hearing quite a lot from my physical therapist about referred pain. I thought I was having jaw problems, but it turned out that I had strained the muscles in the front of my neck. When I did neck strengthening exercises, the pain went away.

Have you had a stress echo treadmill by a cardiologist. I am concerned about the jaw pain.
My mom complained about jaw pain for quite awhile and the doc didn't listen.....she died of a massive heart attack when she was only 59.

I have not had a stress test in 2 years. I have an appt. with my Cardiologist in a month. I will mention this to him. Today I have an appt. with Dentist, I will also mention to him. I only have jaw pain when I walk.
