Jaw feels tight and sore from a cold????
« on: February 13, 2012, 11:36:28 AM »
I've had a cold for a few day's now.
I thought I was getting better, but now I feel a lot of pressure in my sinuses I can breath through my nose now though)
What's bugging me is the pressure and ache in my jaw now too, I don't recall ever feeling that before. I'm not blowing anything nasty out of my nose so I don't suspect any infection. Are sinuses and jaw connected? Has anyone felt this before??

Yes, they are connected.  Clogged sinuses can cause jaw pain, even if no infection is present.  I recommend a good decongestant and lots of hot showers!

Yep... I'm more likely to have jaw pain when I am congested.  I imagine the extra congestion and drainage puts pressure on the joints in the jaw. 

Hope you feel better soon! :)

Thank god I just read this. I've been feeling the jaw pressure as well. This was something new for me so I was freaking out. I've had a cold for the past week and just recently started feeling this. I feel better now knowing its not something else.
