Sure its noteworthy to get a tetanus vaccine(booster) every 10 years, But I don't estimate you are currently suffering from lockjaw or tetanus!... Maybe you should try a specialist in TMJ. = Temporal Mandibular Joint disease. It sounds scarier than it really is. First they will do the appropriate diagnostic testing to evaluate whether or not you are suffering from TMJ. Then, they will fit you for a small brace, which you will wear primarily at darkness time(inside your mouth). This will help you stop 'grinding' your teeth. Grinding of the teeth can, eventually, create tooth loss and gum disease. Pain management is also essential. You mention your ear hurts, do you also own ringing in the ear? Sometimes its difficult to find a TMJ specialist. If you cannot find one in your city, I suggest you start with an orthopedist and run it from there. Stress can aggravate this condition.
I am not confident if this is your diagnosis but it doesn't hurt to explore all your option, since you need throbbing relief and stress nouns. I hope this information helps you and not wreak you more stress.
Tetanus was call lock-jaw because it caused extreme muscular contraction, one of these human being the jaw muscles.
It also have other symptoms though, and was (and still is) a greatly horrid disease.
If you had tetanus to such an extent you would without a doubt not be writing this now! you would be within hospital.
SUPERHOT, I HOPE YOU ARE REPORTED FOR GIVING SUCH A DISGUSTING ANSWER.
