TMJ, right side of head symptoms, connect?
About a couple of months ago, I started to get pressure and some pain on the right side of my head. Also, I began to get pressure throughout the forehead (like pointing a finger on my forehead-type feeling). After a couple of days, the right side of my jaw started to click and snap. I went to a tmj specialist and diagnosed me with tmj disorder and sent me in for a surgery (I forgot the name but it was usually the least surgery). What's weird is that it did not do anything; the feeling of jaw clicking, and right side and forehead pressure started to come back again. Let me explain better in detail:
"The right side of my head started to have pressure BEFORE TMJ. This is what gets me confused; can people get head problems before tmj?
"My right side head pressure is so annoying and uncomfortable, makes me feel as if im in a airplane and my ear is clotted or something.
Are these symptoms normal and related to tmj? Even though that the tmj started after the right side pressure? I am just too nervous about going to a doctor and get tested for brain problems, etc. Please let me know what you think, thanls.
