Strained muscle: Sounds like you strained a muscle while reaching for the high c. This will resolve with time but may take a while. Could consider a non steroidal anti inflammatory medication such as Ibuprofen or Naproxen if there are no other contraindications.

A 28-year-old female asked:

If : If the feeling persists, see your doctor. Tingling in your body is typically related to sustained pressure to a nerve. Pay attention to whether or not you tend to clench your jaw together when you are concentrating or stressed. Another action that may cause the tingling and pain is if you have a tendency to grind your teeth while sleeping. This is terrible for your teeth and can cause injury to the jaw. If this is the case, your dentist can provide you with a night guard to wear at night. Have your teeth assessed, if applicable, to see if there is erosion from grinding. Other possible issues could be temporomandibular disorder or some peripheral neuropathy that could be causing the tingling and pain.

A member asked:

How long does TMJ pain last? I wake up in the morning with pain in my jaw that my dentist says is caused by tmj. Will this last a certain amount of time and go away on its own, or will I have to see a dentist or doctor to fix this?
