Does The Ear Affect The Jaw?
Tonight, I want to ask a few days ago I cleaned my ears, then I was hit by a friend who was passing by, and after that the jaw on my left was very painful when opening or chewing food. Does it have any effect on me cleaning my ears kmrin? or caused by something else? and please help the solution
Hello, thanks for the question.
Pain when opening the mouth or chewing can be caused by several things, such as an infection of the ear, infection of the teeth, inflammation of the jaw joints, peritonsil abscess, and so forth. Scraping or cleaning the ear too deep can cause sores and inflammation in the ear which causes the ear to become swollen, painful, painful when opening the mouth and chewing, and can be accompanied by discharge from the ear, decreased hearing, and others. While pain caused by disorders of the jaw joint or TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder) is usually characterized by pain around the jaw or around the ear, difficulty when chewing, talking, laughing, difficulty in opening and closing the mouth, sound when moving the jaw, aches on the face, etc., usually caused by direct impact on the jaw, inflammation of the jaw joint, and so on. If the complaint is felt to be very disturbing especially to the point of causing eating and drinking disorders it is advisable to consult a doctor, the doctor will conduct a direct examination and additional examinations if necessary. Handling will be adjusted to the cause of the complaint. It is better to avoid digging your ears, keep your ears dry, avoid your ears from intruding water, eat soft food first, meet your fluid needs, get enough rest, and can take pain relievers that are sold freely in pharmacies if they are very painful.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
