Why Is My Jaw Hurting

Why is my jaw hurting after singing?

You are probably compensating with your jaw when you should use the core muscles in your body. That's common Too much breath pressure can build tension in jaw.When you breath in before a phrase, try to feel expansion on your lower back and relax your lower abdomen. Keep that expanded feeling in your body when you sing the phrase and control the air flow with your body rather than throat/jaw. If you want to sing more powerful, don't push too much air out, keep that "resistance" feeling in your body, and think of more resonance space. It's hard to explain that coordination in Quora but you could find some tutorials about breathing technique online, or get voice lessons if you have a possibility.When you sing higher pitches, make sure your jaw is flexible, open it a bit more, but not over-extending in a stiff way.

Jaw hurting?

It sounds like you may have TMJ ( temporomandibular joint). It's common, I have it too. If your jaw muscles are stiff and sore when you wake up, it may by a sign that you are clenching or grinding your teeth in your sleep. Clenching or grinding teeth can exhaust jaw muscles and lead to pain.

TMJ disorders include a variety of conditions that cause tenderness and pain in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Your TMJ is the ball-and-socket joint on each side of your head where your lower jawbone (mandible) joins the temporal bone of your skull.

Signs and symptoms of TMJ disorders may include:

* Pain or tenderness of your jaw
* Aching pain in and around your ear
* Difficulty chewing or discomfort while chewing
* Aching facial pain
* A clicking sound or grating sensation when opening your mouth or chewing
* Locking of the joint, making it difficult to open or close your mouth
* Headache
* Uncomfortable bite
* An uneven bite, because one or more teeth are making premature contact

Treatment (you will need to go to your dentist): Night guard appliance. If you grind your teeth in your sleep, a night guard appliance, which is a soft or firm device inserted over your teeth, can help prevent grinding and excessive wear of your teeth.

My jaw hurts from boxing... Any tips?

Getting hit in the jaw jars the muscles that operate the jaw which will cause them to tighten up. Tightened up jaw muscles will be in pain and not allow you to operate your mouth properly, kind of like having a spasm in the muscles. To get rid of the pain you have to release your jaw muscles to free up the ones that have tightened up and here's how to do that release:
Jaw muscles:
Put your fingers on your head so your thumbs are behind your ears. Press into the back of your jaw bone next to the skull and hold that pressure. After 30 seconds slowly raise your head until your neck is fully extended then open your mouth as far as you can. Release the pressure but hold your head and mouth like that for another 30 seconds.
For best results relax your body first by taking a deep breath and exhaling then remain this relaxed.

My jaw hurts after throwing up?

So just a few minutes ago I made myself throw up and not because of an eating disorder, but because I've been feeling nauseous all day and I figured it would be best to just make myself throw up instead of feeling dizzy all day. I brushed my teeth and right after that my whole jaw started to hurt and opening my mouth really hurts. How did this happen? Will it go away on its own or...?

Why do ear infections make your jaw hurt?

You'd be surprised how tightly interconnected your ears, nose, throat, jaw, and lungs are. There's even a single medical speciality field that bundles the first three together: Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) specialist.Ear aches are often tied to sinus problems. Congestion, a sore throat, ‘post-nasal drip’ (fancy words meaning ‘snot running out the back of your nose instead of the front'), and general viral infection stuff you've probably experienced before. What makes ear aches tie into it is kinda surprising to some. Let’s look at a diagram.Did you know your ears connect to the inside of your mouth? Right back there near where your nasal cavity opens up to the back of your mouth. That means your ears are connected to your mouth and jaw. Crazy, huh?So when you get an ear ache, it's usually because something foreign is attacking it. Could be a build up of mucous from your nose running into or clogging your eustachian tubes, could be an infection, could be some kind of swelling… Whatever is going on, your body doesn't like it. The pain is there to tell you that.But why does it hurt your jaw? Your sinuses are probably irritated. Like I mentioned before, ear aches are often tied to other problems in your sinuses. That jaw ache could be a byproduct of the ear ache. Or perhaps it's the other way around. Either way, it's common for your ear ache to be accompanied by a sore jaw. A licensed doctor should be able to determine the likely root cause of the pain. Good luck, and I hope you feel better soon.

Why does my jaw hurt if I laugh while I eat?

I’m not really sure, but I did date someone who would have pain in his jaw sometimes when he talked or ate. It hurt him so much that there were times he had to change his daily activities because of the pain. He was (still is) a history teacher at the community college I attended. He’d told me about the time his jaw hurt so much, he decided to show his students a video instead of delivering a lecture so he wouldn’t have to talk. Another time, he had to go see a doctor in his hometown of San Antonio. That’s how much pain he was in.Anyway, what he had was temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome. Here are a couple of links about it: Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ, TMD) Causes, Treatment & Remedies and TMJ disorders - Symptoms and causes.If the pain is ongoing and affecting your daily life, go see a doctor. TMJ disorder might be what’s bothering you.
