I know a lot of people on here ask questions about RA and jaw pain. This is something I have always had real trouble with and on Monday I was hit by the worst case yet. My whole head hurt due to the jaw pain which led to earache etc, by Tuesday it was starting to ease a bit, but still a painful. Today I mentioned to my husband that I seem to have lost all the power in my jaw (when eating) especially the front area. He said that I have been lisping all week too and that had I noticed that my front teeth seem to have moved; I assume this could be why I've lost the power in my jaw.
Is it that the steroids have suddenly done damage (I know this is a risk)? I will book an appointment with the dentist but thought I'd ask if anyone has any visible damage to the jaw thanks to our lovely friend RA.
