Jaw tightness/stiffness
« on: August 20, 2014, 11:29:36 PM »
So tonight I started running a low fever and my jaw feels tight or stiff.. I'm scared because last week I had a piece of metal stab me in the arm. The cut was scrubbed and cleaned and is actually healed now. Hardly no mark left but I googled... Yeah I know that's bad.. But it says it can take 3days to 3 weeks to show up. And jaw stiffness is a symptom. I just need help or advice. I always go to the hospital. It's always anxiety related.. Do I need to go? I'm so panicky right now.

Have you been clenching your jaw?

I didn't think so but after doing my relaxation it's a little better. Plus yesterday I remember my right ear hurting so I'm wondering if its from an ear infection or sinuses.. I'm still a little anxious but not as bad. But now I have a headache along with the jaw issue.

I have that problem a lot, and when it first happened I didn't even realize I was clenching my jaw--but it's a really common symptom with anxiety sufferers to do that subconsciously. So you could be clenching your jaw and that's what's causing the jaw and ear pain and headaches. Because like I said that happens a lot to me.

But I'm glad it got better after some relaxation.

However it could just be sinus issues as well. I forgot to add that.
