Mouth ulcer doesn't hurt or heal

1 messages in this subject.

Hi everyone! About a week and a half ago I started experiencing an awful pain in my jaw and ears. I went to the dentist and he did some x rays on me (with this machine that he put inside my mouth and hurt a lot). The day after that I got a mouth ulcer on my palate, it hurt for like a day, now it doesn't hurt but its been there for a week and it doesn't seem to be getting any smaller. Went back to the dentist and an oral surgeon and both said that I have TMJ disorder (gave me a muscle relaxer and now most of the pain is gone) and that the sore is probably an ulcer that was caused by the oral work I had done and the stress of the whole thing. They both said that it doesn't look like oral cancer at all (I don't smoke and I'm 26). For some reason, I'm not satisfied. If it's nothing why hasn't it shrank in the last week? I should add that I have no other symptoms (I can eat and swallow normally). I made an appoitnment with an ENT next week to look at it but for some reason I'm nervous that it might be something serious. I have had mouth sores in the past but never in my palate and they usually hurt a lot and go away in a couple of days. I've been using salt water to rinse but doesn't seem to be doing much. Any suggestions that can give me peace of mind while I wait to see the doctor? Thanks!
