Mild Dislocation: 22 y/o female asks, Why am I experiencing pain at the base of my skull when I laugh? it is a pinching pain that lasts until I stop laughing and smiling. Sound like a mild Dislocation/strain of the jaw or some structure at the head & Neck base region. Depends on the way the jaw is moved in laughing/ smiling. Your PCP can Reduce/ adjust it for you or see the Dentist/ Oral Surgeon for realignment.
