For the past 4-5 months I have been suffering from chronic head pressure/headaches. It is less severe sometimes, but it never goes away. I have fairly severe TMJ. I thought at first that the pressure may have been related to my wisdom teeth, so I had them removed last week. Since then, the head pressure has been much worse. It only alleviates to a tolerable level when I lay down. But once I get up again and start moving around, it comes back. I hope that the pressure/headaches are related to my jaw problems. I push on my jaws and massage them with alot of pressure and it seems to help with the head pressure a little bit. Could the irritation and pulling and pushing on my jaws during the wisdom teeth extraction be what has made my head pressure worse since then?
I have also been experiencing some dizziness and weakness with this. The dizziness is not so severe that I lose my balance or anything, but it is nonetheless present.
This chronic problem has really taken my life from me in the last few months. I am 27 years old and in good health (before this). I am not overweight and I am fairly athletic and active. It has made me very lethargic and not want to do anything. Any ideas what it might be?
