ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Four years ago I woke up with a stabbing headache in my left temple with severe jaw pain. The pain came and went for a few months, until it was around 24/7 for about 1 1/2 years. It slowly spread from my left jaw down the side of my neck and into my back. All of my muscles from the middle of my back to top of my head and in severe pain all the time. This leads to severe headaches and continued jaw pain. All of my scans have been clear. And although the pain is not as sharp as it once was, I still live with terrible pain every day. At 30 years old, I take 7 medications to try to help but the pain continues to interfere with my life.
