Hi all, I’ve had a problem with my jaw for a couple of weeks and yesterday was so bad that I ended up in an NHS walk-in clinic because I thought i was having heart attack or stroke as I know heart problem can affect jaw. My blood pressure and pulse rate was normal and was already feeling better by then anyway.
It is like a really very very tight sensation around my jaw, neck and back teeth… BUT it is not painful at all… just feels very strange and sort of as if it is not part of me and like a tingling cramp. At the same time my dizziness and double-vision (both of which I have daily) seemed much worse… but this might have been because I was so sure I was having heart attack that I was in panic.
I have had panic attacks before but they felt nothing like this… not this tight feeling in lower face and when it wore off it had reduced sensation… not numb exactly but like it didn’t have proper feeling. Still feels like that. Also inside of mouth feels same.
I’ve looked on internet and read about TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA which you can get with MS and is a very painful condition which affect the mandibular nerve. All of the sites said it is always extremely painful… except one site which said that it can also be without pain but with strange sensations and tingling and numbness.
Anyone else know anything about this? I know it might not sound like much as it’s not painful, but it’s a terrible feeling like my jaw is going to shatter or my neck is going into a cramp and cut of my breathing.
I have PPMS and symptoms have got worse in past couple of months.
Thanks for any info,
