Dunno if anyone else has ever experienced this before...it's just weird to me! I was having a major panic attack tonight, bad back pain w/ chest pain, achiness and pain in both arms and jaw pain. I did notice that my jaw was kind of tense afterwards so I have been trying to relax it. Now it is only hurting on the left side, way in the back where my wisdom teeth are. I know it's possible that this pain can be attributed to these wisdom teeth (my dentist keeps urging me to get them out, but I'm stubborn
) but the discomfort is primarily in the left upper jaw, along with kind of a numb feeling in my left cheek.
I pinched my cheek and I can feel pain, the muscles are working so I guess it's just some sort of weird sensation, but now the jaw pain is moving up, around my left cheekbone and even behind my left eye. Right now I'm trying to put a warm compress on my cheek/jaw to see if I can get some kind of pain relief from that...but no luck so far. After my panic tonight, I am still a little bit on edge although I did take a klonopin about an hour ago and am feeling a little more calm. I just attribute jaw pain to heart trouble...
I am 20 and in good health, according to my doctor. I have had an EKG and an echocardiogram which both came back normal, and my bloodwork was fine except for a vitamin D deficiency. I had been doing so well, anxiety-wise, until this panic hit. I am getting ready to start school again in a couple weeks, and the whole moving in process and adjusting back to the college lifestyle is very stressful for me - I'm hoping this is the extra stress that triggered my panic.
Sorry this is so long-winded...I guess what I'm really trying to ask is if anyone has had left-side jaw pain that radiated up to the cheek and eye? And if so, how did you treat it? Thanks
