Hi

Have you any information about arthritis in the jaw. I'm getting pain from my ear which becomes very painful even to touch which I do not understand down to my jaw and neck.

I was getting this and they said it might be arthur. Now I'm getting it in the other side. The right side is worse than the left.

I do not understand why it is so painful all around my ear. I cannot touch it it is that sensative.

Thank you

Trisher

    Hi Trisher

    I'm sorry to hear about the pain you are experiencing from your ear.

    I'm assuming you are talking about osteoarthritis here.

    You can find links on this at http://www.arthritiscare.org.uk/PublicationsandResources/Listedbytype/Booklets

    A diagnosis of the symptoms could include an x-ray or other imaging test if arthritis is suspected. This could be arranged by your dentist or a dental hospital.

    I hope this is helpful to you.

    Regards
