after 8 straight months of a nonstop headache, with nausea and vomiting, daily meds, ct scan, mri, neurologists, eye docs, regular docs, etc... i went to the dentist.
he says i have all the classic signs of tmj. my jaw opens in an "s" shape as opposed to up and down, i have lots of clicking and popping and my jaw bone bulges when i open etc. he saws it seems like i may clench and grind pretty often. but i've never had an episode of "locking" or anything of that sort.
he says that i may also need orthodontia to correct my bite after getting fitted for guards that i will need to wear 24/7 to stop clenching (which i find myself doing constantly due to stress)
so.... i guess that's that.
but i'm still skeptical. i'm wondering if that's what's really causing my headaches. or if this is just "in addition to" the wonderful world of my headaches.
