Has anyone experienced facial pain as a result of their depression or anxiety?

I can't say I ever have. Can you give us more details. As in the kind of pain it is. When it comes on. How long it will last for and what exactly it feels like. So anybody else reading the post might have a better understanding of what exactly you mean.

Yes to facial pain (particularly with my anxiety but i am sure this applies to depression as well).  Mostly from muscle tension.  For me, it is muscle tension in the jaw (tmj) from clenching teeth (when sleeping - result of anxiety).  And head and facial pain as a result of neck and shoulder tension.  I see a medical massotherapist for that and it has really helped, overall, any head and facial pain I used to get.  Definitely a tension thing.

Our thoughts dictate our emotions .... in other words, how you think is what you will feel.

I experience this all the time--even pain in my ears. Often times, pain meds do not work for my anxiety/depression induced pains.  I also get massages and chiropractic adjustments to help with the pain. If my depression/anxiety are at a minimum, the massages really help.
