[all on right side]
unable to open mouth-I'm on a liquid diet.
Severe upper jaw pain.
Severe lower jaw pain.
Headaches (above eye)
Back of head
Eye pain-behind eye
All pain rotates between stabbing/shooting/throbbing.
Drs stated no-to-minimal swelling (depends on the visit)
I have difficulty functioning in parts of my life and I am waiting to hear back from my neurologist.
I also ordered a night guard which now I am afraid to use, because I cannot open my mouth.
I do not want to rely on hydrocodone as I prefer not to take medication.
I would appreciate any advice.
