my temples have been sore off and on now for about a week.  not bad but more today than usual.  i do have stress and was sick yesterday but maybe i'm grinding my teeth at night?  i got a sports mouth guard but it leaves indentions in my gums so i need to just start wearing my retainer i got a long time ago when i had braces i guess.  it hurts but probab less than this.  it's annoying.  it's a new pain.  always something it seems like!! 
i read online it could be tmj but i asked my dentist before if i had that and he said no.  he said i could grind my teeth though. 
if anyone has had this though, please let me know if you know what it could be.

When I am stressed or anxious I tend to grit my teeth and my jaws and temples are always sore. I think that is all thats going on with you. Nothing to freak about. Hugs!

nanners is right... i often grit my teeth when im stressed and sometimes i dont realize it... try focusing on relaxing your jaw at times when stressed
