This may seem weird but I think I have tmj and sinus headaches.
I can feel the sinus pressure and my nasal passages are constantly stuffy. I get the usual behind the eye pressure. I also have had tmj for a while. My jaw gets really tight and when I open my mouth wide my jaw will occasionally pop. Sometimes that tension travels up to my temple area. It seems like the muscles in my face get very tight.
Lately I hace been getting very mild sharp pains in the top of my left temple region. The are only there for a split second and the gone. They are pretty mild. My tmj has been worse lately, could the sharp pains be part of the tmj. I have also been more stressed than usual. I have noticed myself constantly clenching my jaw, almost grtting my teeth. I think I have been doing that for a while unkowningly.
I usually get enough sleep. Sometimes stress does keep me up at night. It's never hard for me to fall asleep especially when I exercise. Lately I don't feel tired until 9 or 10p.m. then its lights out.
Also, My anxiety manifest itself as hyperventilation sometimes. That can make it hard to fall asleep.
Do you feel widespread pain and tenderness to light touch on your body?
I guess you have the sleep disorder of intense and prolonged teeth clenching.
Prolonged and intense teeth clenching causes significant muscle contractions and nerve bundle distortions, mainly of the temporalis muscles on the sides of the head and these leaves the muscle without oxygen and pain is experienced.
People who suffer from teeth clenching can experienced great variation in type, location and quality of head pain.
I get sharp pains in my head and my head feels really tight lots of pressure and i had a catscan and it came out fine what could this be a sinus headache? I never get headaches? can you help me?
