FROM OUR EXPERTS
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...
When all the weight in the world rests on your shoulders, it is very common to experience neck pain. Instead of trying to power through your day with handfuls of pills and a whole lot of misery, a few simple remedies can help you solve your own neck pain.
Chin Tucks : One of the most common reasons to experience neck pain is from the small joints (facet joints) in the back of the neck become inflamed and painful. The reason these joints are under so much stress is the fact that your chin tends to drift up and away from your chest. As it does so, the back of the neck gets pinched in a vise grip.

That chin tuck maneuver helps to stretch out the back of your neck and relieve pressure off the sensitive joints. This can be done while standing, sitting or even lying in bed. If you feel a “pop,” that’s okay becaus...
I had a pretty significant setback last week brought about by my pillows. Yes that’s right, I did say my pillows are to blame. I have far too many pillows on my bed. I like having them there because I like to prop up while watching movies at night before bed. Problem is, when I fall asleep I tend to turn onto my stomach, which means that my head is jacked up at a nasty angle which is where it stays all night, propped up from the wrong direction by all those crazy pillows. So the other morning, I woke up to a terrible pain in my neck and upper back. I could barely turn my head without a searing bolt of lightning shooting down my body. I knew I was going to have to just wait this thing out, and that meant no gym time. Sigh! I was so ready to start working hard again. I’d been out off and on because of my ankle, which was finally feeling good. I was so bummed. I kept myself moving all week as much as I could. I walked my dogs twice a day when the weather was agreeable, and di...
