    I even had my mouth piece in, but I think he caught me at a moment when I had my mouth a bit open (I don't know if that makes a difference). Can you still get a painful jaw like this even if you had a mouthpiece? My ear hurts too :eek: I sparred plenty of times before, but this is the first one that's hurt the jaw.

    Question: can you still open and close your mouth?

    Also, if there any fluid/drainage/blood coming from your ear?

    If the answer to these two questions is no, you should be okay. You'll experience pain for a while longer, but no need to worry about anything serious.

    It will be gone in a day or two. Just take some ibuprofen or aleve and suck it up.

    Having your mouth open makes a huge difference. This can lead to getting your jaw broken or sprained. I've had my jaw sprained before it does hurt like a bitch. Just remeber bite down on your mouthpiece.

    i was doing bjj training one day and the guy was kinda in the butskoot position and i was crouching trying to get side mount buy running around him anyway somehow i got hit with a big knee on my jaw next to my ear,
    didn't hurt much but now ive always what i describe as "sand" and i hear a crunchy/clicky sound when i move my jaw around,

    got the gloves out on boxing day (no pun intended) and we had a few laughs i got caught with a right hook that gave me a headache for two days

    probable lost a few brain cells but such is life

    yeah I was able to open/close the mouth and no fluid or blood from the ear. I feel normal now
     
  12. DKM76 Guest

    Yeah, I gotta remember to bite down on the mouth piece. Also, I noticed that whenever I give my opponet too much respect, I get beaten badly.
