Hi I had pressure in my head yesterday , it was tension , even though at times my mind wanted to say something else ;) You have hit the nail on the head , I grind my teeth in my sleep , dont no I am doing it , but the dentist can tell i do , also like you my teeth & jaw is always clenched , i have to try & relax it , but its hard work as its clenched without me always knowing it , yesterday when I was having pains I realised & had to make an effort to keep it relaxed , then it started to improve , its not what you think it is , I even saw a neurologist who said the same , anxiety

No it doesnt make both sides of your head hurt , usually its my right side , having said that it had a change yesterday & was the left ;)

Love

no its not that , if it is i must be a walking miracle by now as I have been on about this since i was 16 & now 50 !!!! no i was offered a gum guard but knew it wouldnt be for me either

Mybe have a word with GP about your meds it wont do you any harm to ask

Remember you are not alone with this
