What could be causing extreme pain under the tongue and in the back of the jaw?

I have had this pain for 3 days now and don;t know the cause.

I think three days is enough time to see a change for the good. If not see a doctor and he might refer you to a dentist.

you could have just pulled a muscle, but like any time you have a concern about pain... you should go see a doctor they would know best.

This could be caused by lockjaw, or tetanus. Tetanus is most likely acquired from rusty metals such as stepping on an old nail. It could also be a neurological problem which is caused by an error with the way your body handles the brain's electrical signals. There are tests for both causes, but must be performed by a physician.

Both of your problems donot seem connected to each other. Check up whether a new tooth is growing which may be the cause of pain in the back of jaw.

It sounds like one of your nerves are freaking out, so to speak. It could just be a pinched nerve that will heal itself. Otherwise, if you have had any mouth or dental work, I would be pounding down their door for an answer.

It is more than likely a cavity of your tooth that is causing the pain. When a tooth gets infected, it can also effect the jaw and tongue.

Pulled a muscle???? In your tongue? Tetanus????? Seriously, why are you trusting random strangers on the internet. If it persists, see a doctor! Don't make it worse by listening to people who have no idea what they're talking about! Ask a professional who can help you.
