Hi all,
I just recently started getting a tender spot right above my left ear, just below my temple. I t isn't a severe pain and doesn't really bother me too much, but when I touch it the area almost feels bruised. I do not recall hitting my head or anything like that. I do have a minor headache on the left side of my head ( forehead) but I did have a migraine yesterday and I am thinking its just lingering.
I do suffer from migraines with aura occasionally but haven't had one in a while.
I am thinking it could be TMJ because sometimes it feels like both sides hurt down o my cheeks or jaw area.

I am just curious if anyone has these symptoms and maybe get some insight on what you think it is.

Also, I do wear glasses but just recently got a new prescription - but it does sometimes feel like my glasses may just be too tight, or even just a tension headache?

Thanks for reading

I could be a symptom of migraine, increase water intake and call you doc for a check up.
