I only phoned my dentist last week to find out what the procedure is due to me having AVR and needing to take antibiotics before I visit, receptionist didn’t know and was supposed to get back to me after speaking with my dentist, she never did. On Friday I yawned and my jaw made a very loud crack and sort of locked, I wiggle it and it went back, but since then I started to get aching in the lower jaw, this seemed to turn into chronic toothache and today my face is swollen, jaw line and part of my neck. I can’t relieve the pain, I have some antibiotics from a chest infection so I’ve taken them as I’m scared of developing endocarditis. Do you think if I contact my cardio nurse she could help me by pass my dentist and go to the orthodontist at the hospital. Any ideas to get shot of the pain, I’m crawling up the walls. Or has any heart Warriors been in this position.
