For a week now I've had a pain that goes from my jaw up through my ear to the top of my head. On Wednesday it was so bad I decided to get it checked by my dr. Unfortunately there were no appointments til Friday, but they suggested checking with my dentist. I was able to get an appointment the next day. However she was at a loss as to what might be causing it & suggested it was maybe a muscle strain. Friday I still had the pain so I went to the dr. He also had no idea as to what it could be, although he did say my nerve may be slightly irritated. In any case both of their treatments was to just take pain killers & wait to see what happened.
