  • Sharp pain in left side of jaw for 3 weeks. Hurts when I chew.

    The last few weeks I have been getting a sharp pain in the left side of my jar. It eventually gets better so I can finish eating the food I started. Never experienced before but have had clicking. I thought it could be TMJ but I do not grind my teeth either. Anyone have anything similar? Thank you.
