When i wake up, i have really bad headaches and as the day goe's on
my face starts to swell under my eyes, and my head and neck get tight.
It makes me dizzy and tired, is this commen with TMJ ?
Im still getting to grips with TMJ, and its kinda scarey !! :(



I don't have any swelling, but, the rest of it is common with me. Good luck to you.

I have swelling. My face swells so much I have to put ice on it to bring the swelling down.

I had the opposite and my cheeks have sunken in, I look really thin and yuk in the face now and don't know how to get the roundness I used to have.

When I wake up I have severe swelling under my left eye. This is my worse side of my TMJ. I thought this was related to a prior eye surgery but after seeing a jaw specialist on Tues. now I'm not sure.

    I have cancer

    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!

    Support from family

    It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
