I hope someone has some wise words here! I suffer from daily headaches which I think are caused by tension in my jaw. I have a bite guard as I grind my teeth at night, and this combined with exercise and head/shoulder massage seemed to solve the problem when I had it years ago. But not now. I have to take painkillers every day and I'm wondering if I should go to the doctors and what they might do? sad
