Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.

Dr. K. :

Jaw pain is usually pain from your temporamandibular joint. It can be due to injury or grinding your teeth at night. It can also occur for no known reason. It is treated with antiinflammatory medication like ibuprofen. Be aware that jaw pain can also be a symptom of ischemic heart disease or heart attack. While you are very young for this, its important not to ignore the possibility.
