anyone experience this when having anxiety?

Posted , 4 users are following.

I've been having jaw pain all of today. I have had it before but it came when I would have a panic attack and my muscles wold tense. Now they just happen randomly.

I went to my cardiologist yesterday and I got an EKG and it came back fine but I'm worried it might be a heart attack now.

I can open my mouth and move it amd it doesn't hurt. Although I've been told it's common with anxiety, I'm afraid it's not.

Has anyone else had jaw pain because of anxiety or just randomly?

    Oh my goodness, I had a random jaw pain yesterday! It was so bizarre because usually it was accompanied with tense neck muscles but the jaw pain started and then it made my face tense up, close to being numb but it was more of a tense feeling it took about an hour to go away.

    I've been having jaw pain since a long time ago when went to get a crown put in in the back of my mouth. They really stretched my jaw so it felt more like that, than the feeling I have when my anxiety acts up.

    Hope you feel better! Try deep breathing and massaging the area. Or try the ice wrapped in a towel.
