Please forgive the random stream of questions, but I just need to know if others here have the same symptoms as myself - I feel like I am going to seriously lose it because the pain is killing me, so please forgive me.
1. Is it pretty much safe to say that everyone on here suffers chronic daily headaches? I wake up sometimes feeling OK, but then as the day goes on, my jaw hurts worse and the PAIN starts and does not let up. I've tried doing ibuprofen every few hours as directed, however, it DOES NOT work!
2. Has anyone on here experienced a bee-sting like feeling in their cheeks? Almost like a bee stung them on the inside of their cheek?
3. Does your pain ever migrate to other areas of your head if you change positions? For example, if I'm sitting too long and then get up, my pain will move from my cheeks to my eyes.
I pop painkillers like they're candy. Friends, I need support desperately. I do not know where else to turn. I am seeing a chiropractor tomorrow and my dentist the following day for a nightguard, and my neurologist the next day. Can I get any lower??? My fiance just doesn't get it. He doesn't know how a person can be in so much pain every day. I hate to say it, but I have thought of suicide, but would never seriously do it, because of my daughter.
Does everyone with TMJD suffer this BADLY??? Will I always be in THIS much pain???
