A trigger point causing extra pain.

Post  pen on Thu Oct 28, 2010 4:22 pm

I have a trigger point or something in my left eyebrow.
It hurts if I yawn and when I chew.

I am pretty sure it is causing me extra pain.
If I yawn I can feel it in back/top of my head as well.
I also have a problem with my jaw on that side.
I am told it is tight muscles.

My question is, does anyone have one of these points, and have you found a way to deal with it please?
I spoke to the physio lady and she said apply pressure and massage gently to break it down.
This hasn't worked. It might be a Fibro problem I dont know, but I don't need this extra pain.

Thanks

Pen,

It may be a problem with your jaw joint called TMJ or Temporal Mandibular J???? (whatever the next word is). It can cause alot of pain. Ask your dentist.

I know those points. They become tender when I have a bad migraine. In my case, the pain in these points is due to migraine and it goes away when I don't have migraine.
Acupuncture can be very helpful for those points. Have you ever tried it?

Not TMJ thanks Hal. Well not according to the dental hopsital anyway.

Not had acupuncture fir a while Ivy. I stopped it after 4 because I started to not feel good atfer it and
it didnt help the pain.

My TP is permanent, it hurts when I chew and yawn migraine or no migraine....
