Unexplained jaw pain
Now that the unexplained tooth pain is gone, I have pain in the very back of my lower jaw, behind the last molar. You know how the back of your jaw hurts when you go to the dentist and get a couple of shots in that area and then the novacaine wears off? I don't grind my teeth and I haven't had any dental work done recently, so why is this happening? It feels like someone punched me in the jaw. The pain has lasted about a week but isn't any worse than when it started. What in the world....??
