Mystery pain is the worst kind of pain

Posted by Marko on January 17, 2020 in Off Topic |

I feel like I’ve been punched in the jaw. I noticed the pain yesterday. It’s not quite my throat but not quite my jaw. At first I thought it might be wisdom tooth pain, but it doesn’t hurt when I chew on that side or poke my gums. The area right underneath my jaw bone, where it meets my neck is tender to the touch.

I took a Tylenol before bed and even slept with an ice pack wedged under my head. Every time I rolled onto my right side or put my hand under my cheek, I woke up in pain. When I flex my head and bring my chin to my neck, holy man. That’s very uncomfortable. Sneezing hurt.

I don’t feel any swelling though. I compared it to the left side and it seems normal; no swelling, no lumps. I’ve been told it could be a gland, could be my tooth, who knows. What I do know is that it’s really frustrating. It could be worse I guess. If it were my gums and I couldn’t eat, oh man, I’d be crying right now.

I’m going to see how the rest of the day goes. If it’s worse tomorrow, I’ll call a doctor. In the mean time, has anyone experienced weird pain when pushing up into their jaw bone? Ideas? Suggestions? Random ramblings that have nothing to do with this post? All is welcome!

    Are you getting the sniffles or getting sick? It could be a gland is swollen and sensitive. Just a thought.

    I’ve had that happen and it lasted for a few weeks. I had a very hard time eating though. I finally ended up at the dentist and he told me I must have been grinding my teeth in my sleep and bruised my jaw bone. I had a special night guard to protect my teeth and vicodin which made me sick, but it eventually went away. I looked in the Louise Hay book, You Can Heal Your Life and teeth represent decisions of life and if you are struggling with a decision, they are likely to give pain. The affirmation was “I make my decisions based on the principles of truth, and I rest securely knowing that only right action is taking place in my life.” I believed Louise more than my dentist.

    I guess that could be going on. I am going through some heavy relationship stuff….

    I think I’d like to read this book.
