Re: Sinus problem and tense neck/shoulders
I don't have jaw pain either....until the doctor pressed on the trigger point! The nerves around the jaw are connected to other nerves in the face. I didn't realise my jaw made any noise till I actually stopped and listened and my right side does make a slight rubbing/grinding noise (completely different to the clicking noise it made when I was a teenager). I didn't even realise I was clenching my jaw during the daytime till I actually thought about it!
I also can't explain the shortness of breath which I also have (which the doctors all seem to think is unrelated ???) I struggle to make the beds, or do a little shopping without getting out of breath & exhausted.
It is so confusing, and is quiet possible that we don't just have one thing wrong with us, but multiple issues at the same time, which make diagnosis more difficult.
The way I see it, if TMJ is causing my face pain and increased mucus etc. then relieving the TMJ symptoms may leave other symptoms remaining which can then be looked at again. It seems very complicated...but then our bodies are complicated!
