Could this be TMJ

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi

I am getting so down being in pain everyday I go from worrying its a brain tumour to thinking it may be tmj but not sure my symptoms fit so here they are

Daily headaches from waking normally get worse as day goes on and better in evening when I am in bed

Shooting pains throughout the day in various parts of my head - many in my forehead that makes me think not tmj

Constant ache coming from my jaw area

Throbbing in my ears

Tingling in hands, arm, legs and feet

Throat closing up sensation

Light headness and feeling like going to pass out when standing still

I had opticians Sunday and have doctors today and dentist next week but this is beginning to make me scared worried and down sad

I am 30 years old and female

    I have really

    Bad anxiety and I have all these symptoms. I know it doesn't sound like it but it is. Anxiety has a lot of physical symptoms that are horrible. Especially head sensations. I also have tmj and my jaw clicks and also just feels very tired. And Achs sometimes. Ringing in the ears and feeing of fullness pressure in my head and temples.
