While I was enjoying my lunch the pain hit me hard and that was the end of my meal. My jaw was hurting and if I could I would have cut it out of the side of my face. The pain was like I had been punched in the jaw after chewing gum for hours and punched again while I was chewing. The pain was too much. But, this time I didn't just sit there and cry. I immediately reach for my purse and took a pill. Then I got up went in the bathroom and turned on the hot water. I then got a face towel and placed it under the hot water. I then took that towel twisted the water out of it and applied it to the side of my face that was hurting. I did this twice but after the 1st application the pain and greatly decreased. The second time it was gone. Since, then I have had a soft meal that did not involve eating and have cut my phone calls short. Right now I am doing fine. Hopefully I will make it a little longer without the pain. Oh I have tried the cold method but, it never worked for me. But, the hot towel method did.
