Hello Heavenlysexy,

There could be a number of reasons for your jaw pain. Slight truama to the area, arthritis, or TMJ which is the most common disorder. Most people aren't even aware they have TMJ. Some signs are popping, clicking, stiffness, and pain that radiates from the jaw area.

TMJ is a disorder that doesn't ring very serious for most people and offen it comes and goes. Not a great priority. But you can read more on this condition and others at:

It is always best to go and get checked out by your physician whenever you have pain. Pain is an indicator that something is wrong with your body. After all it can't tell you what's going on...Come back and let us know what happened.

Feel free to ask any additional questions you have.
