Can tooth pain cause neck pain?

I've had tooth pain for 3 days now without any relief in sight. Now my neck seems to be hurting along with the tooth pain.

Is it possible for my tooth pain to be causing my neck to hurt?

Yes you can start getting neck pain when you have tooth pain. Both neck pain and tooth pain are related.

It's usually nothing serious but if your tooth pain starts getting worse or doesn't go away within a week or 10 days then you should see a dentist since serious tooth pain and tooth infections can actually lead to a heart attack.
