Sharp Pain On Left Side Of My Face...

I have really bad pain on my left side of my face that feels like I have a really bad ear, tooth, jaw, and headache. It so bad that it bring me to tears. I have taken Tylenol and ibuprophen, but I don't know what to do anymore. Someone please help me with some advice if you have had this or have an idea what it may be.


Hi Denise,

I encourage you to contact your physician ASAP for an evaluation to determine the cause of your symptoms. Maybe it's something minor, but there is potential it's heart related. It could also be something as simple as TMJ, a problem with the jaw, but there's no way to tell without seeing a doctor. You really should get it checked out.
