this is my second episode of this its identical to this first one. it last about a month or so. I have reallyh bad ear ache that radiates down my neck to my collar bone. it causes discomfort under my jaw area and under my chin to the front of my neck but only on my left side. i also get a bad sinus infection on the same side then it all clears up and the pain slowly goes away. ive been to the ent,er,oral surgeon, dentist and md. ive had blood test(basic) and a ct with contrast  pano xrays, oral cancer screening with the blue light.all came back negative. and no tmj as well. so no one knows the problem. it was suggested I maybe should see a chiropractor. can any one please help me.

I wish I could provide some definitive help. According to this site a pinched nerve in the neck can cause head pain.  Another site states that a pinched nerve in the neck commonly causes pain radiating down one's arm, facial pain and ringing in the ears. This suggests pinched nerves in the neck can provide a variety of symptoms and perhaps the jaw and ear pain that you're suffering from. Perhaps a visit to the chiropracter is in order. 

 

Good luck!

I suffer from a serious case of tmj and i think you ight be dealing with this condition.   It makes you feel like you have an ear infection at times and your jaw might click or porp.  I would see a good dentist that deals with tmj or also you might see a ear , nose , throat doc.  Blessings,  tim

Yes, I just had this happen again over a time of 10 years. I have used a heating pad or pain pactch on my neck to help with the pain.

 

 

after a few days it goes away.   I have had a lot of sucess with all of my neck,shoulder and arm pain by going for acupuncture over the past 6 mos.

 

Look for a Worker Bee Community Acupuncurist in your area as the cost is very reasonable.

 

Hooe this helps.

 YES INDEED SWEETIE, I HAVE A 'TRAINWRECK' FOR A SPINE & WHEN IT HITS IN MY UPPER BACK & NECK...I HAVE JAW PAIN, SINUS PAIN, HEADACHES, SKULLACHE, RINGING IN MY EARS & THE LIST GOES ON.

 I EVEN FEEL LIKE I HAVE TEETH AGAIN WHEN THIS HAPPENS. (I HAVE FALSE TEETH)

 FIND A GOOD CHIROPRACTOR & AFTER A FEW TREATMENTS OR MAYBE EVEN JUST ONE TREATMENT...YOU'LL FEEL LIKE A MILLION BUCKS.

 GOOD LUCK & PRAYING FOR YOU SWEETIE. LaughingInnocent

PS...I ALSO HAVE BONE DISEASE & A FEW OTHER THINGS WRONG, SO TRUST ME...CHIROPRACTORS HELP THE 'BEST'.
