Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

you could be having bad acid reflux up from your stomach into your throat and jaw causing the neck pain and jaw pain.

Dr. David :

are you having symptoms of acid reflux? heart burn? sore throat?

Dr. David :

this can happen after binge drinking.

Dr. David :

hello?

Dr. David :

also you could be low in B12 and folate vitamins if you have a history of heavy drinking.

Dr. David :

this can cause your nerves not to work properly and cause pain

Dr. David :

are you taking a multivitamin?

Customer : Hi I don't have acid reflux and take multi vitamin it was all of a sudden pain in neck after running then got worse up I to jaws and face
Dr. David :

sounds like a pinched nerve in your neck most likely

Dr. David :

can happen if you sleep on your neck funny

Dr. David :

running sometimes can put extra pressure on the disks inbetween the bones of your spine and cause disk protrusion and pressure on nerves which can cause pain.

Customer : It on the main artery so sore to touch right below jaw. I can move neck normally
Dr. David :

do you feel a swollen lymph node there?

Dr. David :

any hoarseness of voice?

Customer : It's nothing to do with discs
Customer : None of above
Customer : Could it be associated with high blood pressure on artery stroke like symptoms
Dr. David :

possibly.

Dr. David :

you have blood pressure barrow receptors in your neck.

Dr. David :

this would be easy to check your blood pressure when you are having these flustered periods

Dr. David :

have you had your blood pressure checked?

Customer : Do u know anything sounds like u guessing. Pinched nerve ok dangers of stroke is an emerency
Dr. David :

stroke would be unlikely at your young age.

Dr. David :

high blood pressure causing flushing would be more common.

Customer : Blood pressure 5 months ago was high
Dr. David :

sounds like you need your blood pressure checked again.

Customer : could it be shingles
Dr. David :

shingles usually comes out with a rash in the area of the pain.

Customer : There is flushing u making things up
Dr. David :

usually blisters on the skin, sometimes it can take a day or two for the skin rash to manifest after the pain.

Dr. David :

are you saying I am making things up?

Customer : Ok I have pain extreme pain top of neck below jaw on left hand side on the artery. It has got worse over few days jaw is extremely sore and up side of face
Customer : Whatever I say u agreeing one second pinched nerve next blood pressure just read what I wrote
Dr. David :

jaw pain most commonly is from inflammation of the TMJ joint.

Dr. David :

if you bite down or grind your teeth, you can have inflammation of the TMJ joint which can cause extreme pain on one side of the face and neck and radiate pain to the eye

Dr. David :

do you have a history of TMJ joint inflammation?

Customer : But pain started in main artery and now in jaw and up side of face
Customer : No when I bite down no pain and no history of tmj pain
Dr. David :

artery would not cause pain. you can have referred pain from your spine to your neck or your jaws to your neck.

Dr. David :

arteries themselves don't hurt.

Dr. David :

you could have referred pain from your throat to your neck as well.

Customer : No I have had spinal pain before not that it's on on spot on the neck then goes into jaw and up face
Dr. David :

this could be a trigeminal neuralgial type of pain as well.

Dr. David :

you would need an MRI scan of your brain to look for inflammation of the trigeminal nerve
