Nobody I talked to IRL has any idea what this could be.. I was hoping the Bees could give me some insight.
I tried to go for a run the other day. I got two blocks in a light jog, and I got a super intense pain in my jaw bone. It felt like someone punched me in the face, no joke. I walked another 10 blocks and the pain didn’t go away until a few minutes after I got home and sat down. I don’t clench my jaw when I run or anything. Now I don’t run that often, but I’ve never experienced this before.
I was thinking maybe it has to do with altitude? I lived in Washington my whole life now I’m in SLC, maybe it’s just that I’m not getting proper oxygen or something? That just seems so ridiculous! But it’s the only time I’ve gone for a run in SLC and the only time it’s ever happened…
What the helllll is this?

Angina can present as jaw pain. I suggest you follow this up asap with your physician-before you run or do any other physical exertion again.

Yes, this is the first thing i thought of too. I remember it being mentioned during my training at the gym. Not to freak you out, but def talk to your Dr. or if you don’t have to get a referral first a cardiologist & I would not wait. Heart disease is in my immedite & extended family, so I’m alsways super cautious when it comes to anyhting with the heart. So many healthy young people have heart issues too!

That’s scary!!! I mean, I’m 19.. I hope it’s not 🙁
How immediately do I need to see a doctor about something like this? I’m moving back with my parents in a few months, and that would be easiest but is this something that shouldn’t wait at all?
/edit: whoops. Just saw your “do not wait” ayy!
I’m sure that sounds stupid but I just never even considered that a possibility!
What specifically is angina? I’m worried now!

Another thing it could be is TMJ, which is arthritis in the jaw. My dad has it, and different things trigger his. He got it in his mid-20s.
Has your jaw hurt since then?
