Hello, just wondering if anyone else has experienced this type of pain and if there is a specific doctor that I should visit.

I've been having this pain that comes and goes. The pain specifically is under my jaw, about three inches to the right from my chin. It's kind of a strange pain: sometimes it feels like a bruise, other times it'll be a tingly sort of pain (kind of like when you hit your funny bone.) There's no pain when I eat, drink or swallow. Usually, I feel it the most if I tilt my head to the left or if I look downwards. If I press on the area, I feel the pain as well.

I appreciate your help!

  • I have the same thing, but I feel it when i tuck my chin or turn to the right. Sometimes it's a pang that catches me off guard. Kind of tender when I push up in there, but not always. And sometimes I dont have it for a few weeks (I've had this for awhile) and I kind of forget about it and then it's back for awhile (like now). Sometime I think I should see a doctor and then it goes away for awhile. I don't feel an obvious gland or lump in there.

My boyfriend has the exact same thing!

  • I have some kind of infection going on in my mouth and throat and when it gets the best of me I also feel the same thing you describe.It is probably a swollen and/or irritated lymph node. You can't make out the bean shape under your jaw unless you have a very thin neck and relax all of your upper neck and jaw muscles.

  • I seem to have this too, just woke up with it the other morning. Pain just back from the right side of my chin, just inside the jaw. It hurts like a bruise when I press it, and feels tight and painful when i look up. No problems swallowing or chewing. No lump that I can detect, and it doesn't feel swollen, just tender, not like it usually does when my neck glands are inflamed. I assume it must be some tiny gland or node - I hope. I would love to know if anyone finds out. wierd...

  • I have the same problem. I've had this problem for approximately 6 months. My pain is mostly when I tuck (bow) my head or turn my head to the right. If I press hard with my thumb up under my right jaw it feels like a bad bruise. I did go see my ENT specialist and had a CT scan of the area but found nothing. It's seams to be getting worse. I think I'm going to request an MRI scan of the area which can see much more than a CT scan, so I've been told.

  • I have the same problem, and I think you all have problems with your submandibular glands/salivary gland. They are the glands under your jaw, they create saliva heres a link to learn more: http://www.m.webmd.com/oral-health/guide/salivary-gland-problems-infections-swelling
