Sometimes right after eating I get an intense pain that feels like it is in my cheeks. It feel like it is coming from the jaw joint area, but my jaw doesn't hurt. Feels like a stinging sensation in my nerves. It persist for a little while, then slowly fades away. It occurs on both side of my face equally. There is no tooth pain or bone pain from what I can tell. I can open my mouth wide open, so I don't think it has anything to do with the joint, that is just the area of my face it is located. It doesn't happen with many food, I noticed it occurs when I eat fast food burgers. Any ideas what it could be? I have been searching everywhere and can't find anything that even mentions pain only directly after eating.
