Hi there thanks for the help.
I'm 19 heading onto almost 20, and male.My jaw does easily get tired when chewing.It's been happening for periods of 2-5 hours over the last 3 months or so at random. This current one has been almost 30 hours.No other symptoms that that I think can relate to this. I'm not taking any medication.Thanks again

At your age it is not as common for your symptoms to be a sign of anything horrible.....but you might want to see your MD on Monday for a complete exam and possibly some lab tests.

If things get worse you could, of course, go to the ER.

Does this make sense to you?

It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
