I have a complicated history of headaches since the start of 17 years of age and i am nearly 23 now. i have been reading some of the boards here that led to believe that i might have new persistant headaches simply cause they are very very persistant, being there 24/7 and never going away. I have chronic tension rising from my upper back, shoulders through my neck and is very noticable in my jaw and accross the majority of me head. for sometime i thought that the jaw was the source of the problem leading me to believe that they are tmj headaches but im not sure this is the primary source of my headaches. im wondering wether anyone diagnosed with NDH have jaw tension as a contributing factor?? and also any advise possble with coping strategies etc... i would be extremely grateful. thank you

hi timur,
check yourself with a dentist to check with any possible gum probs as abscess in gums can cause it,looks like you have facial pain like me too on 1 side of face along with headache at times,blockage of phlegm /mucous in some areas of skull/face can cause them too.Other possibility can be any past injuries or accidents which can cause slips and fall.Look for possible reasons and make appointment with a neurologist as too much headaches can be symptom of some underlying problem thats masked so far.
keep me posted .
good luck
