Have you been examined?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
Yes I've been to three separate dentists all three say I'm not grinding my teeth

Thanks for the details

This can be a problem with the jaw muscle which is inflamed

Other possibility could be a dental problem

Thirdly it could be an irritated nerve

You need to use some anti-inflammatory and see if it works or not

If no improvement then you will need some imaging for further evaluation

Please do let me know if you have any other question
