Hi all – my headache specialist suggested I see with a neuromuscular dentist to see if my TMJ is causing my headaches. All of mine are on my right side and that’s where my neck pain is and where my TMJ is a bigger issue.
So I met with the doctor a couple of weeks ago and they did some testing to show that my right-side bite is where nearly all my pressure is going. That would correlate with all of the pain I’m having on that side of my head. The recommended treatment is a bite splint to get my jaw back into it’s happy place and evaluate in 6 months to see if I can scale back on the splint or make the permanent change with braces.
He told me most people who see him come in with headaches, and I actually spoke with his assistant who is going through this treatment for that reason.
So, I’m hopeful it will work (i get fitted for the splint Tuesday) but was also curious if anyone else has looked into this as a cause of their headaches?
