"Is a sore jaw a symptom of a heart attack?"

Q: I’ve heard that a sore jaw can be a symptom of a heart attack. Is this true?

A: While a sore jaw can indeed be symptomatic of a heart attack, a sore jaw can also be the result of grinding your teeth while you sleep and other problems that are much less serious than a heart attack. The only way to know for sure what’s happening is to consult a medical professional.
