Throat Pain
Hi there yes I had my glands scaned under the chin and they said they were fine and normal. They say that im suffering from tmj. But not convinced!!!!

Its very fustrating with the sore throat on one side and the mouth pain ie especailly in the side of the tongue but I no how rough I feel and they sre just putting it down to this tmj.


Have u had any luck with a diagnosis if u have let no what u have had done

Hi again!

Im having a scan tommorow and I am terrified .
Funny you say about tmj because 3 years ago I was diagnosed with this by my dentist, I grind my teeth in the night so dont think it helps.
I dont think tmj can make you saliva glands swell so feel something must be doing it.

I cant believe your symptoms are exactly like mine all down my left hand side.
I have pain in my tounge and down my neck and sometimes my ear is effected. I have had dizzy spells for 3 years now and like you I am just fed up with it all.

p.S did they tell you there and then whats wrong or did you have to wait a while for results ?

Scan
Hi there mirri

the scan is painless and u dont even no u have it done I had mine done at qa hospital and they were really good, I asked the lady who did the scan and she said it was fine but I had to go back to the oral surgeon for them to confirm this. Are u having the glands done under yr chin if u are make sure they do both just to make a comparison.



Best of luck please let me know the outcome as this is getting really silly and quite painful at times and as u said I cant beleive there is some else with the same symptoms I thought I was the only one.


Best of luck

Hi There
Hi there mirry I hope yr scan went well. I forgot to mention I also get a lot of strong upper back pain which then spreads down into the mid line back, have u had any of this also I get a very stiff neck mainly on the left but also right in the centre up by the base of the skull. I know when mine is going to play up I get a very stiff left side jaw. Have u also been experiencing this. This all started with a sore throat on the left side when I was 7wks pregnant my baby is now 8mths.

Please reply as I would like to no how it went for u and did u have a ct scan or ultra scan.

Best of luck

Hi gemma

lol yeah I had a blast at kereoke! People tell me I sound just like sheryl crow, lol ( I wish) maybe its from the smoking, ha ha.

Next day is a little better in my throat but not totally better...I still feel a little lump, and dryness in my throat on left side, and left side of my toungue is still irritated. If I stick my toungue out it catches on my teeth. But im pretty sure its not a canker b/c its not sensitive to orange juice or anything, its not open, just sore and swollen. And gland in throat is swollen on left side too.

I havent gone to the doctor, I am hoping it will go away on own....If its not better in a couple days I probably will I guess. I hope its better by saturday so I can go sing kereoke again, :)

Pain In Throat
I've found (after years of research and failed attempts by numerous Dr.'s to resolve this issue) that the reason for my sharp pain that begins under the ear, following the jaw line (making my teeth hurt) and down into the side of the throat is due to blocked eustachian tubes.

An over the counter decongestant helps drain the tube and resolves the pain. I'll also get a tickling in the ear, like fluid is in it. This happens to me several times a year, in the Spring and Fall and will stay around off and on throughout the season.

I've always thought it was allergy related. The Dr. finally admitted that this is what it probably is, but can't be sure. The main thing is to keep the eustachian tube drained so you don't suffer loss of hearing.

i have this.. pain all in the left side. well, mostly. i feel most anxious or worried about the left hand side, my ear, my throat, my neck, my shoulders...mostly my throat though. it is relieving that i am not the only one.

i have only been diagnosed with tmj...but it hurts, it could be cause i keep touching it, or just because i keep thinking about it...but i know it hurts, and im glad i found similiarities!

I describe the throat pain as...it feels like a pulled muscle, under the jawline. it goes away throughout the day when im sitting still. but the second i move, bang..its back.
