TMJ or Intracranial Hypertension?
Long story short, I have had a constant pressure for 11 months now in my jaw, cheeks, neck, and back of head. The pressure moves from place to place throughout the day, so weird
I've had MRI, CT scan... nothing.
Sinus surgery, wisdom teeth extraction, no help.
I have no other symptoms, just a constant pressure that will never go away. The only thing that works is hydrocodone but I don't want to take that forever. All other pain meds dont work. Amitryptilyne does nothing.
I have no jaw joint pain so I'm skepitcal of TMJ. Is there honestly such a thing as TMJ? I've never heard of anyone's TMJ resolving...
IHH, wouldn't my eyes hurt and wouldn't I have a severe headache?
Tension headaches cant possibly last 11 months? can they?
Appreciate any response
