do i have TMD/TMJ
ok so last night i started to notice some slight pain in lower left jaw. the jaw on the lower left side of my mouth,now on that side of my mouth i have all of my upper teeth on the left side, but on the lower left side i only have 2 molars, and then my front choppy teeth that sit in front of my 2 remaining molars.now below are details on the pain im just anxious nervous and freaking out over this pain
now sometimes it feels like the pain comes/originates from the back part of my lower left jaw where there is no teeth and sometimes it feels like the pain comes/originates from the last molar left on the side.
i do have a poping and or a clicking noise when i chew food not sure if its popping or clicking but i can deff hear it when i eat and chew
the pain comes and goes. when the pain does come it doesnt last more then a few seconds to maybe a min or 2, then the pain goes away.
my mouth does not look or feel swollen nor does it look or feel infected. the pain i feel isnt your normal tooth ache pain the comes and lasts for hours on end this pain is spontaneous. also hot weather seems to start the pain but like i said before the pain only last a very very short while if that.
i dont brush my teeth as well as i should but im trying my best. also as far as i can tell pressure applied to the tooth as well as biting down on the tooth while eating doesnt seem to cause the pain as far as i can tell
lastly i cant call my dentist till Monday and the likelihood of them being able to get me in the day or even the week that i call them isnt hopeful
do you guys think i have TMD/TMJ or do you think i have a toothache?
last time i saw the dentist back in febuary all they said was i needed a deep cleaning they said nothing about cavities although they did wanna pull 2 teen just because they said it would be easier to clean
sorry for the long post any ideas whats causing this random sporadic pain?
edit paion is only localized to the one area/side/part of my mouth once in a blue moon i will feel the pain shift to the same area on the right side of my lower jaw but that is rare
seems rather odd for a tooth ache to produce pain in an area of my jaw that has no teeth in it which leads me to suspect TMJ edit forgot to add i feel no pain when i open my jaw/mouth altho sometimes if i apply pressure to eht area og my mouth at the back of my jaw i feel slight pain but theres no teeth there
the pain shifted twice today from the lower left jaw to the lower right jaw incase any one wants to know
edit while i do hear some slight poping when i eat my jaw never feels locked nor does it lock at all lastly my ears pop when i open my mouth/jaw
also should i see my doctor about this issue or my dentist reason i ask is im not sure if its tooth ache or TMJ/TMD or if its just a random sore jaw
