Falling on my face
I fell last friday a total face plant. I hit my chin and nose, nose immediately bled and my chin skinned up. Since then I have had so much pain in my jaw. The hinge just that would be where your temporomandibular joint is. The right side hurts worse than the left. Unfortunately I have taken two hard falls this month. The other fall I hit the side of my head and my ear on the opposite side I am hurting now. I actually went to the ER for the first fall but didn't for this newest fall because of my insurance and not being sure they will pay for the first fall let alone a second visit.
I know I have a horrible sinus infection and not sure if I am falling due to this. But the pain in my head is so bad. I am going to go to the doctor as soon as I can but can this cause TMJ permanently or can injuries like this actually heal?
I am allergic to carbs: I break out in fat!
