Craniofacial pain is a term used to describe chronic facial, neck or head pain and can be caused by a number of issues says Dr. Heidari. The most common of which may include migraine headaches and earaches, neck and facial tension, upper back pain, and general fatigue.
Until recently these symptoms, appearing unrelated, generally went undiagnosed or were misdiagnosed and for the most part went untreated.
Possible contributing factors to Craniofacial pain include:
- Injury to the neck or jaw
- Teeth clenching and grinding
- Malocclusion / Bite issues
