See oral surgeon : Depending upon when your injury occurred, you could still be healing. The oral surgeon who placed the plates can help determine if your are healing correctly and determine the cause of your headache. Also, follow up with your regular dentist to make sure your hygiene is good and that your do not have gum or tooth damage.

Broken jaw: The first thing you should do is see and discuss your progress with the surgeon. Often reassurance is not a strong suit of surgeons. The energy dissipated into your jaw to break it is tremendous, and parts that dont break like the tmjs are often injured (nonsurgical injury). So the healing after jaw fractures may take months. The migraines are a separate issue not caused by fractures.
