From the past three months, I am having pain like irritation of the nerve on the left side exactly on the temple of the head, and in the left jaw in front of the ear. This pain radiates to the back of the ear, below the left jaw, and then radiates to the left side of the neck. The pain is often constant and irritating, but doing jaw movement gives little relaxation. Then after four seconds, there is a recurrence of pain and nerve irritation. I was doubting a TMJ problem, but there are no symptoms like cracking while moving the jaw. This pain does not limit the opening of the mouth. Opening the mouth is not a problem. It is exactly not a pain, but more of an irritation of the nerves in the above areas, and it is worst than the pain. I had a wisdom tooth extracted five days back, as the tooth was fully grown but could not come out from the gums and it was still under the gums. I thought the pain was due to this wisdom tooth, but even after the removal of the tooth, the problem did not subside. Please help.

Thank you for replying. As suggested by you, I asked my doctor about an oral pantomogram, but he advised to wait till my wound heals, as he also suspects that the pain was due to the wisdom tooth. But even after the removal of stitches, the pain or irritation has not subsided. I would like to take a second opinion, but I am not sure whether it is a dental problem or a nerve problem. Should I visit another dentist or a neurologist?
