haven't been bothered by tmj headaches for yrs. But now my neck/shoulders , behind my ears, top of my head, sides of my head, sinus area and in front of the ear hurt so bad. It is getting ridiculous, it has been going on for a good couple wks. I dug out my nightguard and am having it checked out for proper fit today. Is this what type of pain you have when yours flares up and do you wear it mainly at night? It is affecting my whole head I swear and I feel like I am losing my mind. This is just stressing me out so much, I know its making it worse but how can you not stress out? I know alot of fibro patients are affected by tmj. Any advise is appreciated, I know avoid stress and eat soft foods.
