Hi good day sir/mam, I've been experiencing this pain a while now. My jaw and head hurts but only On the left side. For instance if I bend down with my head facing downwards and raise back up it pains a lot for a minute or two then slightly easier to bear with. My mother suffers with high blood pressure but there isn't any other sicknesses that I know of in the family. So can you provide me with an explanation on why this is happening to me please, i'll be very thankful. Have a blessed day! Aaron.
Two things you said might indicate Migraine:
the pain being on one side and
the pain worsening when you bend down.
Take a look at Anatomy of a Migraine for more information on the possible phases of a Migraine attack and the potential symptoms.
That said, what you describe could be any number of issues. There's simply no way for anyone to explain why this is happening...
I was applying pressure this morning to something an had the sharpest pain shoot from the back to side side of the right side of my head. I stopped for a minute then continued what I was doing and it happened again. All I could think about was an Aneurysm. Could this be and what should I do I am scared? Joanne.
Statistically, it's unlikely to be an aneurysm, but you certainly don't want to find yourself on the wrong end of those statistics. Any unexplained head pain should be investigated. Please see your doctor as soon as possible.
Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert

I don’t like to complain much. As far as the side effects resulting from my Multiple Sclerosis, I try to keep them pretty private.
Well, other than the wheelchair giving away the reality that I can no longer walk, or the occasional blog post or HeathCentral article where we share our experiences living with the disease. But Dan and I try not to complain or admit a debilitating effect of this disease we share.
However, truth be told, lately when it’s just Dan and me, I find myself complaining quite a bit.
If it’s not a pressure sore, my not sleeping well or just a sore shoulder, my Trigeminal Neuralgia gets me pretty upset.
From the moment I wake up, I’m aware of this pain. When I wash my face, my nerve zings. Put on moisturizer, zing again. And brush my teeth? If I’m not reduced to tears at least twice a week, then it’s probably because I’ve just given up on dental hygiene. Really, if I can avoid the pain, I will.
