The causes of pain in the jaw when swallowing are as follows.
Patients need to clarify whether the jaw pain occurs only when swallowing, with no increase in pain when chewing, speaking, or opening the mouth. If the answer is yes, it is presumed that this condition is caused by a throat disease, with a higher likelihood of acute pharyngitis caused by bacteria or viruses.
At the same time, the primary disease of the lower jaw is affected by muscle pull during swallowing, which also produces pain and suggests the possibility of temporomandibular arthritis.
