Depressed: Can't stop crying I'm... - Anxiety and Depre...
I had something very similar when younger.
In my case facial pain was caused by my collapsed Bite, having to many extractions and this caused the pain. If we are young and your Dentist may be worth a visit
The other problem can be caused by Anxiety, especially if you are grinding your teeth. This can cause compression of the bite, your Dentist can supply a device that rests over the teeth at night, that may help. When we put compression on the teeth this can cause stress on the jaw, giving pain
I hope I have understood your problem
Yea but I think it caused by when I forced stretched my neck too much to the point it messed with my jaw because I use to try so hard to pop my neck on one side because of my headaches and yeah I guess axiety too and I did it so much i mean alot but I'ma go to the dentist on the 4th they treat Tmj so hopefully they help me 😞🙏
What you did when younger, there is a massive nerve that feeds the face on the side you may have pulled, most of the nerve is by the side next to the ear and continues down the side of the face, if you touch the area just below the lob of the ear that is the area is for the jaw and facial nerves, The nerves the follow the main arteries down the side of the neck to the top of the spine and shoulder, sometimes because of my neck concerns, nerves. The jaw is quite complex, located by the ear lobe
The Jaw has a very strong muscle that is attached to the jaw, there are also tendons that protect the nerves. Any damage you describe may also cause headaches.
Vannessa, I so totally understand your pain and frustration. It is frightening to be in
pain every day, every night which only helps in making the muscles even tighter.
I remember those days in having to wear a mouth guard at night and even some
days when my anxiety was so bad. I'd cry from the pain and then the crying would
put additional strain on the jaw, face, neck and head muscles making the contraction/
muscular tension headaches the worst possible. I looked like a zombie walking around
with a neck collar, mouth guard, using ice paks on the back of the head and yet hot
towels on my shoulders and across my face. The shoulders just near the neck had
muscular knots that triggered the headaches. It was a true nightmare.
The dentist appointments became all important in getting the bite corrected. Sometimes
in filing certain teeth down. All in all, it was physical therapy that gave me the most relief
as well as listening to muscle relaxation tapes throughout the day and night. A small dose
of Xanax was prescribed to help with the muscle tension. I also used Biofeedback, Acupuncture and Hypnosis. A combination of different modalities finally helped me get
my pain lowered by helping with my anxiety. Once you find the tools you need that work
for you, things will get better. I no longer have headaches or jaw pain. It does leave
once you accept the pain and not fight it. I wish you well xx
Ugh I just want it to go away like yours it hard finding the best Tmj doctor here in Austin Texas but I'm trying and we'll my boyfriend trying hard to save up 3000$ just in case I really don't know how were gonna do it I really don't but I need all the help I can get I just hate waiting not doing nothing about it 😞 because it been more then a year of suffering and I'm sad that I can't enjoy going out and being young instead just tortured in my own body trying hard to not lose it😞
Butalbital can help with the headaches. Although too much use can cause as many headaches as they are treating.
I had the same problem. I went to an endodontist thinking I needed a root canal. There was nothing wrong with my teeth. I was grinding my teeth at night. Told me to heat my face with heating pad, then massage face, starting at the temple on down. One week later and no pain. Worth a try. Hoping you find relief!!
