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!
