Popped Jaw

About 5 days ago i was yawning and the left side of my jaw popped.  Now I have really bad pain on the left side of my face.  It's not to bad during the day, but the second I lay down the pain is intense.  I can feel it in my ear all the way up to my temple.  I've tried putting a warm towel on it but that doesn't really help, and there's not really any products that you can put on your face.  Any suggestions on how to make the pain go away, or at least make it more tolerable so i can sleep!

talk to your Dr. about it. ....you can actually dislocate your Jaw. Hope that's not the case though. Feel better!

You could try an ice pack on it for about 10 mins at a time. If you have any swelling, the ice will help in reducing it. Hope this helps and you get some comfort.
