last year, I cracked my 2nd mandibular molar on the right side. The dentist was unaware that it was cracked all the way through to the bottom, so I was in pain for 10 months before the tooth was found out and extracted. Then, I started noticing some other pain. The main problem was cold sensitivity up above my teeth, far in the back of my mouth. I thought it was my upper 2nd molar, but it didn't feel like it was the tooth. I also had some pain biting on that tooth, as though it was bruised. As I don't have a tooth below my upper 2nd, I could only tell by pushing on it or using a bite stick. Along with all this, my ears were crackly and stuffy and I had pain down my neck and up to my cheekbones. An endodontist checked out that top tooth many times, not finding any signs of fracture or other problems. The dentist and endodontist decided that it sounded like myofascial pain from eating on the other side of my mouth for a long time, as well as stress. A lot of the facial problems have subsided: no more cold sensitivity, reduced ear pain and cheekbone pain. However, it still hurts to put pressure on that tooth with a bite stick or when I push on it. Could this still be part of the tmj/myofascial pain issue? Has anyone else experienced this? I know that tooth pain can be linked to tmj, but usually it's because the person grinds.
