TMJ: This could be the TMJ (temperomandibular joint). As you lay down, and turn to your side.. You're likely putting pressure on the joint..

Had ear infection tht spread, jaw cldnt open & stabbing pain in head behind infected ear. Pain in head has returned months later. Shld I b concerned?

It is always better to have things evaluated early BEFORE they have a chance to spread. ...Read more
