A 66-year-old patient presents to your office with jaw pain. She states she has had jaw pain that radiates to her ear for the last week. She thought she had a tooth infection, but her dentist told her nothing appeared to be wrong. He recommended she see her primary care physician. She is requesting pain medication because it hurts so badly. Provide at least 3 possible differential diagnoses and justify your rationale. Develop therapeutic plan options based on quality, evidence-based clinical guidelines.
