I have muscular TMJ. My head and neck pain are so out of control I seriously want to cry but don't only because it causes more pain!
I always have aches in my neck daily but I am getting very severe forehead, temple and head pain now that is out of control. It is like stabbing pain. I've had this for probably 10 years now off and on but we're talking once a month, max. Now, this pain is becoming more chronic. I am presently on day 2 of the following:
1. Eyes ache and hurt.
2. Sharp temple pain that switches sides and comes and goes.
3. Forehead pain.
4. Feels like someone is taking their hands and pushing down on my head constantly.
5. Severe neck pain and spasms.
6. Jaw stiffness.
What I cannot handle is the temple and eye pain. It's out of control, makes me even sick to my stomach.
Things I've tried:
3. Ben Gay
6. Artificial tears
7. Saline nasal spray
NOTHING is helping.
Does anyone relate to my symptoms and what do you do when you have this going on and nothing helps?
I was just at the eye doctor on Friday for increased eye floaters and he said my eyes looked perfectly fine so there's nothing up with my eyes. I wasn't checked for glaucoma but this doesn't fit. He said my retina and every other part of my eyes were normal.
I am at my wit's end with the pain.
