Today a good friend of mine was telling me about how one side of her face feels like it has a massive bruise on it but when she went to look at it in the mirror to see if she had bumped herself or something it looked totally normal. But whenever she touches it it hurts, and it even hurts to talk on the phone if the phone brushes up against it. She said it's her right side, mostly in the cheekbone area.
I've had issues with TMJ in the past and she said a dentist once told her she clenches her teeth at night but she's never been diagnosed. Her face is not hot or swollen or anything, just sore to the touch.
I told her I'd post her story on here and see what we can find out for her. Has anyone ever experienced this and if so, what did it turn out to be? I'd love to give her some direction if we can because not knowing what is causing this pain is really bothering her. Thank you so much everyone! Michelle
