Really wanted to ask folks here about facial pain. I'm getting loads of it, along with headaches. My GP isn't sure whats up, and isn't sure where to even refer me, maybe a maxillofacial clinic. I was hoping my description might chime with some of your experiences?
My face pain is an ache, like a hot throbbing, constant deep ache. Most prominent in both cheeks just under the eyes, above both eyes in the eyebrow, also in parts of my jaw and close to the ear. Along with this i get headaches that last 4-5 days at a time at the back upper quadrant.
I've changed my glasses, been to the dentist to check up for TMJ/TMD, and i've chatted to the GP who has ruled out migraines, and doesn't think it's neuralgia.
The GP suggested that it's probably just chronic pain popping up in a new place like whack a mole.
Does this chime with anyones experience here?
Thanks for listening..
