    Throbbing/spazing temple vein :(

    Not sure where else to post this - but I think it may be TMJ related.

    I get this fluttering/spazing sensation in my temple from time to time. Like the vein is about to explode. People can actually SEE this if they're close to me. No pain....just, scary and annoying. Any idea why this is happening? I do indeed clench my teeth when I sleep and when I'm concentrating...but....this just seems so odd! Please help!

    Upon further inspection - seems to be the muscle, not the vein/artery that is fluttering. Like a muscle spasm.

    Am I the only one?

    Yes, I get that sometimes from TMJ. I use a small heating pad on my face and sometimes alternate with an icepack. You could also ask your DDS or DR. for muscle relaxers.
