Second opinion] In almost any medical exam by a doctor, the first thing he does is feel the back of your jawbone on both sides. My left side at that point is now very sore. Do I need to see a doctor?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

The pain started yesterday. Sensitive to touch.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Primarily back problems.

Did you get the pain after your doctor felt that area? When did that happened?

Is there any overlying redness or swelling in the area? If so, can you send a picture?

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
