The last few days I've experienced fairly severe stiffness and tension in my jaw and neck (front and back). I have been under severe anxiety and stress in recent weeks (you can read my other posts to get an idea of one of the contibuting factors)and I wanted to see if this is something that other people have experienced and what they have done to relieve this pressure and tension. I am thinking i should go to a message therapist which may help out. Thanks.

Has it gone away? I have the same problem and I am under stress as well. I need to find out ways to relax. I know hot baths help me.
I visited both my dentist and Dr for a sore throat on my left side that lasted over a month. They found nothing wrong. Next came earache, then a swollen tragmus, to where I couldn't touch the side of my face. The tension in my neck and shoulders was beyond belief . Returning again to my dentist he decided to x-ray my jaw and found it was teeth grinding on my right that had put the left side under all the pressure and everywhere was inflamed!

That's exactly what mine was & is, the anxiety/stress that we suffer can cause so many physical side affects that we don't realize. I have had to very conciously think about it so I don't clench my teeth when upset. It has helped a lot & the pain is gone for the most part, til I slip & do it again without realizing it. Mine actually made my lip numb on that side too, plus the pain would shoot up to my eye on that side. I would say to anyone that is experiencing one sided pain in neck, face, ear etc. it probably is from the teeth grinding & clenching, seems we do it on only one side & usually the same side all the time.
