In brief: TMD and allergies

The pain on the side of your head when stressed may be because you are grinding your teeth.
This makes the muscles on the side of your head sore. Try stress relieving tips: breath, take frequent breaks and exercise. An over the counter allergy medication can ease your symptoms due to pollen.
