Hi all. I don't post here often, just kind of linger and read. I find it really helpful. For the past week or so, I've been getting this weird sensation on the right side of my face. When I move my head and neck in certain directions (i.e if I'm stretching or pulling my right neck muscle) I get this weird pulling and twitching sensation on the right side of my face, through my cheek and down toward my mouth. It also makes my eye feel very dry. Thing is, you can't see any twitching if you look in the mirror and it's not constant. I was at the dentist yesterday getting fitted for my very first nightguard and, after the lengthy exam, my face was especially worse. I'm just wondering if this is a symptom of TMJ for anyone else. My doc said that it was but it's just so strange it's hard for me to believe it's really my jaw.
Thanks for any help!
