Neuromuscular Dentistry - TMJ FAQ
I have intermitant shooting pain in my left ear and also sorness in my cheek and the gum on the top of my left side of my mouth for two days. I went to the doctor after the first day and I am on zithromax antibiotics for 5 days. Could this be related to a abcess in the gums, although I dont have teeth in the pained area?
It may be a sinus infection, or a myriad of other things. You need x-rays
and maybe a consult with an oral surgeon. Get a diagnosis, not antibiotics!
Also, get checked for TMJ and see an ENT doctor.
