Rolling pressure in jaw and mouth?

I have a moving pressure throughout my jaw, roof of my mouth, around my teeth - it doesn't stay in one place, it almost "rolls" around my mouth, and is accompanied by a feeling of pressure pushing down on the bridge of my nose, slightly shadowy or grainy vision, and headaches mainly in my temples. I have recently been treated for a sinus infection, but my frontal and maxillary sinuses feel fine and I'm not at all congested. The movement is strong enough to move my jaw involuntarily - I can feel my teeth grinding against each other when I try to hold my jaw still.

Could there be pressure on a nerve or is there some other reason why this would be happening? I can't find any description similar to what I'm experiencing or anything that remotely resembles my symptoms.

  • Hi have you tried to talk to your dentist? You may have TMJ. If you are grinding you prob. need what they call a night gaurd. Only get this from your dr. not from the drug store. Hope this helps
