I was hoping some of you fellow bloggers may be able to help me with something. Recently I've been getting these sharp shooting pains in my temple, but also in other parts of my skull, and sometimes even spreading into parts of my face and neck. Does this sound like TMJ pain to you? I have noticed my jaw aching more recently so I'm wondering if this is what is causing the pains. It's weird because it's not like a normal headache and seems to move around to different parts of my head.
Hi I'm Sarah, I'm 23 and I'm planning to undergo lower and upper jaw surgery to correct my overbite and gummy smile. I was offered but declined this surgery when I was a teenager, but have now decided to go ahead with the procedure. When making this decision I found it really helpful to read other blogs, and hope that documenting my surgery will help others!
