Avatar n tn You need to find the sore points on your cheek and jaw. You have to press on muscles to look for sore points. Then massage these points with short strokes. To massage the masseter muscles on each side of your jaw, place your thumb inside your mouth and squeeze the thick muscle in your cheek with your fingers. To massage the jaw muscles inside your mouth, use your index finger to probe and massage these spots.
1060036 tn?1259188076 When i try to focus the pressure gets worse at some points, and i only get it when going to class, or driving, when im fairly relaxed i don't feel it as much. how can i get it to go away, are there pressure points, or relaxation techniques or something? Also can this be associated with my anxiety since it started when it did? By the way, the pressure is in my nose, forehead, and sometimes the the top of my head.
Avatar n tn What you have sounds a lot like TMJ. You have to press on muscles of your face to look for sore points. To get some relief you can try massaging the sore muscles. Massaging the muscles does not help every one. Also if the procedure is nor correct, then it can further aggravate the problem. Then massage these points with short strokes. To massage the masseter muscles on each side of your jaw, place your thumb inside your mouth and squeeze the thick muscle in your cheek with your fingers.
Avatar f tn I usually work with her with essential oils, pressure points, and energy tapping to bring her pain down naturally. Hope u get feeling better!!
906759 tn?1275957620 My pains include, jaws, arms, legs, abdomen, hands, fingers, back, shoulders, neck, headaches (on occasion), tingling in arms, shoulders, neck, legs, chest (ribs i guess), anxiety issues, insomnia sometimes and im sure ive missed something. What was found after all my tests was Acid Reflux, some slightly bulging disks in the C-spine area, high blood pressure caused by anxiety (controlled by meds). Every heart test came back ok. And i have had everything from EKG's to CT angiogram.
Avatar m tn Unlike a migraine it is something that is present all day, although it varies in severity, it sometimes is mild uncomfort, and sometimes it aggravates to either a dull pressure at night or a hard pressure similar to a painful headache. This has persisted for several months, the only medication that somewhat works on the pressure is ibuprofen gel when administered to my facial area. The other accompanied symptom i have is constant eye spasms.

Avatar f tn No I meant the opposite. Im sorry....not the needles just having the person push on ur pressure points like back of ur ankles or whatever....like massaging them.
Avatar m tn At this point, I’m considering whether the muscles and joints in my neck were injured in the accident, causing trigger points to form which have simply not be dealt with properly since that time. From what I’ve read, trigger points can certainly refer headache pain to the areas where I usually experience headaches. However, I am uncertain about the dizziness involved. My question is: Does anybody with trigger points in the neck also suffer with symptoms of dizziness or vertigo?
Avatar m tn Some places like the ones by my hip area, neck, shoulder blades hurt all the time. Other areas I didn't even know hurt until he pressed on them. I have found the tender points always hurt when pressed even when I don't have pain (which is rare). I think I had 14 of the tenderpoints.

5648238 tn?1431863784 The pain has continued into the morning. It is only when I walk though. It feels pretty bad at some points because I will get shooting pain down into my vagina.
358304 tn?1409709492 I've been waking up with a stiff neck for the past 10 or 11 days now... also is tight/sore during the day. The Dr. said it was just anxiety... being tense. My neck seems to feel better at night for some reason. I havnt had an appetite for almost 2 weeks now... I'm making myself eat... b/c my stomach will growl and I will FEEL hungry... but NOTHING SOUNDS GOOD AT ALL.... and I just have to scarf something down to make my stomach feel better. How long can you not have an appetite for?
470885 tn?1326329037 Sometimes I can feel the pressure points that the base of my neck just throb with pain. Just another sign of how tightly wound up I am.
Avatar m tn I got my MRI results back from my neck. It turns out I have 2 bulging discs, 1 pertrusion, 1 herniated disc and spinal stynosis. The doctor is now thinking that this is causing the headaches. I'm hoping he is right and it definitely sounds plausible. It's just great that finally after 15 months, something has potential been diagnosed as the problem. I go for an epidural steroid injection in the cervical spine next wenesday to bring the inflamation down.
Avatar m tn The nuro said i need to leave it alone for a while and go to physio and get light work on it, using heat and working on pressure points. Followed by accupuncture. He said it will take a while due to how bad it is. He has given me anti-inflamentires and special heat rub for my back/neck.
Avatar f tn It is a long term form of suffering. The things that are going on with you, tend to make me think you have a kidney problem going on because of the blood in your urine, providing you weren't on your period at the time. Kidney issues cause back pain, so does spinal issues and if you are overweight in the abdomen, that can also cause back pain. Fibro pain is unrelenting; just laying in bed with a soft mattress can cause pain bad enough to where you can't sleep or get comfortable.
Avatar n tn But my main problems is a sometimes extremely dull ache that leads to a sharp pain in my neck. I have an mri scheduled for tomorrow so maybe this will help to find out what is causing this. Thanks for your reply.
Avatar m tn What causes you to have crackling noises in the veins on you head when pushing or dragging your fingers across you scalp? I've noticed these symptoms about 5 years ago. I was diagnosed as diabetic and had high blood pressure. My a1c is 9.4 and last BP was 140/72. It started as a mild crackling sound whenever I dragged my fingers across my scalp. If I didn't do this I usually ended up with a mild headache. It felt like a small sandbag on my head. Its gotten worse over the years.
Avatar n tn 33+4 weeks here. Was messaging my legs, feet and hands today. Now I'm getting normal painless contractions. Thought it may be BH but kinda getting worried now because it's been 2hrs. Going to take a warm shower and relax some. I hope I didn't hit the labor pressure points.
Avatar f tn Ok well for the last month or so Ive been having alot or right arm and shoulder pain. Its gotten progressively worse where it has now moved to my neck, back and head. Also over the last week or so Ive been incredibly fatigued and the pain has become more severe over the last week. Also a big concern is that my lymph nodes are now swollen on my neck around my throat the right side is definitely bigger.
Avatar f tn However within that 24 hours I convinced myself that I was screwed and started feeling neck tightness which has caused large spikes in my blood pressure and some migraines and hot flashes, but I have not had any sore throat or sustained periods of being hot, in fact there are points in time where I feel fine. Should I be concerned about my occurrence back in December of 2014 based upon the time log and events that have taken place?
Avatar f tn I find that along with a muscle relaxer and antidepressant, Theracane therapy helps tremendously. A Theracane is used to apply deep pressure on the trigger points. Repeated frequent use reduces the pain signals released by the trigger points. Theracane therapy is commonly referred to as self-accupressure. Google "Theracane" and a lot of great info will come up. I hope you feel better soon. Take care.

Avatar f tn What causes a cronic sore tongue which looks like something has cut it along the tip and front sides? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/693917'>cracked sides of my tongue</a>.
Avatar f tn Migraines are caused by not getting enough blood to your head. Push on pressure points on the back of your neck. Increase pressure until it hurts but is withstandable. About 3 minutes of this and slowly release pressure while messaging. Keep eyes closed and don't move for 5 more minutes. Works for me every time no pills.
